Giesemann makes some good bulbs, usually the aquaflora and midday are used. The aquaflora is a pinkish bulb while the midday was a white bulb. Great for growing plants and looks pretty nice also. But, when it comes down to it, its a matter of preference. Bulbs anywhere from 5000k-10000k will grow plants just fine. If you do get a 6700k to go with the 100000k, then just place them in both slots and see which combo you like better. When I had the aquaflora and midday combo, I liked having the aquaflora in the front. Others liked it in the back.
