Awesome thank you!, I was trying to google it between phone calls at work but the Aqueon/Coralife name issue was getting in the way. Who knows lol. By the look of those spectrums the colormax will be a little more warm, it's higher in the red and lower in both the blue and the green. I like the spread of the 6700k better, wish I could find just the fixture, I'd pick one up and get the 6700k bulb to be our guinni pig since you mentioned you thought about getting one.
The parent company is Central Garden and Pet, lots of different brands.
The 6700K daylight is a good bulb, I had the T5HO version and liked it, though it is now sitting in a box in my closet. For some reason, I thought the Coralife fixture came with it instead of the colormax. The colormax will definitely be warmer and it may have the pink hue to it, it's hard to say, only way to know for sure is to see it in person.
I was impatient and went with another brand since the Coralife was out of stock, the one I got is non-HO T5, but what I didn't realize at the time was that it has the 24" bulb. It is pretty good, especially for the price I paid, and should be plenty for the tank I'm setting up, which will have only crypts, java fern and java moss. If it craps out I will probably buy the Coralife.
