How about this kind white LED with blue

If the one fixture is a T5, then only T5 tubes will work in it. You cannot use T8 tubes in T5 fixtures, or vice-versa; for one thing the pin alignment is different. [I think this is what Geo meant but typed T5 instead of T8]. A single T5 tube over your tank will likely be sufficient [what is the tank volume and length?] and you can use the Power-Glo. It will give a slightly purplish hue which I personally don't much care for, but I know it will grow plants. My choice for a T5 tube would be the Life-Glo 2 (same manufacturer) or the ZooMed Ultra Sun. Both have a 6700K. These are sold in fish stores. I've no idea what, if any, T5 tubes are carried in Lowe's and similar, I get T8 tubes from these stores.
If one of the fixtures is T8, taking "regular" tubes, then again a single tube will likely be sufficient [knowing the tank specs will help us here], possibly two tubes (both T8). Life-Glo 2 and ZooMed Ultra Sun come in T8 too. And you can get the "Daylight" tubes with a 6500K made by GE, Phillips or Sylvania at Lowe's (whichever they carry).
But we really should pin down the tank and fixtures before we send you off hither and yon.
