I have seen tube lights for sale at my LFS, are they any effective, and how do you plug them into the wall?

So these tubes fit in a standard T8 fitting that you can buy from a lighting merchant. There is also a T5 fitting which is smaller in diameter. The fittings come in several lengths. In the old days ( which I remember ) That was all we had. Typically on a 4 foot tank we would have 4 tubes, we would buy different color tubes and use them in different combinations depending on the plants we were trying to grow.
