Bulbs for 3 bulb strip light

What bulbs would you recommend in a 3 bulb strip light in a freshwater planted aquarium? Right now I just have a hagen aqua-glo. All hagen lights would be nice since they are easiest to find in 48". I just don't know what other 2 I should get to mix with the aqua-glo.

A daylight 6500K and an ultra bright 10,000K if oyu can find them. Variety seems to have worked best for me sinc eI switched to a standard 48" shop fixture. This also helps to cover the spectrum of lighting better so the plants get all the light they need.

Just try to find the bulbs with the highest lumens and CRI rating.
