I did the same with my fixture, I did 3x13w 6500K over a 20gal. Amazing plant growth after that.

For reference, under the T8, I had 1 val, about 3" long. It never died but never grew for over a year, just stayed at about 3". Switched my light and now about 8 months later.

20g platy, , 2 x 10g shrimp, 3 x 20g shrimp, 7.5g shrimp and 1 great dane/mastiff puppy.
