Tank lights

I'm starting to add more plants to my clown lounge and currently have just the standard PerfectA 15watt bulbs in the hoods. There are 8 bulbs total for the 125g tank. I bought one SpectraMAX bulb as a start to help the plants out, it sure brightened up one side of the tank a bit colorwise but a week after I got it the bulb started blinking on and off. It was a $20 bulb and I'd hate to think I just flushed $20 away but is that a good bulb? Would hate to buy another to have it happen again. Is there another type of bulb I should look at?

Thanks!
