Reef lighting will generally use in the 10,000K spectrum to the 20,000K spectrum. Fish tank lighting (for fish-only systems) can use aquarium light bulbs in the 6,700K to 10,000K spectrum.
Well when I buy "grow" bulbs the light is decidedly purple or pinkish purple. The plant and aquarium bulbs that I've been able to find look more like a cool white light to the naked eye than the grow bulb. You could use the p&a bulb as regular room lighting and no one would know. I've also seen wide spectrum grow bulbs that look mostly purple, almost like a toned down black light. You get used to the color but it's obviously different unlike the p&a bulbs.

Fluorescent Aquarium Light Bulbs | That Fish Place - That Pet Place
With the number of light bulbs, light tubes, light fixtures, lightstrips, and aquarium hoods available, aquarium lighting can be aconfusing and frustrating subject. However, it does not have tobe. This information should help you to make the right decision aboutyour aquarium lights.Unfortunately, incandescent light bulbs put out a lot of heat,making it more difficult to regulate the temperature in your fishtank. Also these lights use more power for the light they give offthan most other aquarium lighting, so you will have a higher powerbill using this type of fixture.The least expensive aquarium light fixtures are incandescentlights. These fixtures take regular screw-in type light bulbs. Thebulbs are also relatively inexpensive. However, these bulbs need to bereplaced much more often than other types of bulbs.For instance, a popular hood nowadays is the compact Fluorescent hood incorporating an actinic bulb, a full spectrum bulb and a moon light. You could set up the timer to turn on the actinic bulb to go on first and stay on for 12 hours, then have the full spectrum bulb come on an hour or so later and stay on for 10 hours. This could simulate dawn and dusk by having the actinic bulbs come on an hour early and stay on an hour later. Finally, you could have the moon lights turn on when the actinics turn off. Who knows, you may even start to see breeding behavior in certain species that may be more in tune with the light of the moon in this type of setup. Another side benefit of using a moon light is the super cool effect it creates in the aquarium when all the other lights in the room are off.The most common type of aquarium lighting isfluorescent. Fluorescent aquarium light fixtures are more expensivethan incandescent fixtures, as are the bulbs. However, the bulbs useless power than incandescent bulbs, and last longer. In the long run,fluorescent lighting is actually cheaper than incandescentlighting.For all fluorescent lights (N.O., V.H.O., and power compact) andmetal halide lights, bulbs are available in spectrums identified by a"K" number which signifies a temperature on the Kelvin scale. Thespecific color of light emitted by these bulbs is the same as thelight that would be emitted by a strand of Tungsten (a normal lightbulb filament) if that strand were heated to that temperature in avacuum. These lights simulate different lighting conditions dependingon cloud cover, latitude, altitude, and other factors, allowing you tosimulate the environment you wish to in your aquarium.
