|veryzer||I've had 5300 and 6700. Darkblade's assessment is dead-on. Personally, if I had to choose one, I'd go for 5000, but that's strictly taste. Either will grow plants.|

Either 5000K or 6500K will work fine for plants.
5000K is a bit more yellow, while 6500K is more white, with a tint of blue.
Use whatever looks best to you.

|puopg||Plants can still grow with 5000k, but 6700k bulbs usually put out a good amount of PAR and they look more natural. CO2 booster? You mean excel or soemthing?|

Most plants will take in 6700k light better than 5000k.
Most times unless it is LED, you can just switch out a bulb instead of a new fixture.

Hi all I was wondering I have a zoomed flora sun that is 5000k. I've read that a 6700k is better. Can anyone tell me which is better for the plants? I have a 55 gallon low tech setup no co2 just use root tabs liquid ferts t8 fixture. Oh and co2 booster
