Bulb selection

I am getting ready to replace by bulbs in my double 48 T5HO. Currently there is a plant flora bulb 5000k and ultra daylight 6500. I have always had good growth but wondering if I should switch to two plant bulbs 5000K or a different combination.

Stick with what you have. It works, so there's no need to experiment (unless that's what you want).
