I think I like fluorescent the best. It's helping my plant growth. What do y'all think?

Fluorescent will provide your tank with clearer, more natural, looking light than incandescent. The latter will have a yellow tint to the water and may not be strong enough for best viewing pleasure. Additionally, incandescent may trigger brown algae growth, depending on your water parameters.
