I was sold a dual 40w satellite with an actinic blub for 170 dollars at the LFS. After researching my buy, I'm finding that this is a light for reef aquariums. Did they rip me off? I will it definitely help me grow any species of plant?

Actinic will not help to grow live plants. You need a 6500 - 6700 K "Daylight" bulb. You can however, still use the fixture and just get new bulbs.

I also bought the Current Satellite, which came with an actinic/10000k bulb. I just bought a new 6700k bulb and replaced it. Did you buy the dual Satellite?? $170 seems like a lot more than what I paid.
