I want the trimmings for my larger 30 gallon so its all good!! The 30g isn't set up as well as the 10g for growing plants, but I'm sure hornwort and water sprite will do just fine. Anubias, anarchis, java fern, and flaming moss all do in there :]

No, they are lower than that. Each bulb is only 13 watts, so I think that equals out at about 2700k per bulb.
