Actually Mikaila, we are not disagreeing on what you've posted. I used to make a point of saying that kelvin was not reliable when it comes to spectrum as tubes with the same K can differ. But that seemed to be continually confusing those wanting to get into planted aquaria with minimal technicalities, so I am now advocating the 6500K tubes made by Phillips and Sylvania, because they are inexpensive, I have used them, they do have good spectrum, so it is easier to point to them. I know what you mean about the colour, I hate that greenish/yellowish hue too; but my Sylvannia, Phillips and Life-Glo are cool white light, which I also prefer.
