6500 = pretty nice, average, appealing to the eye. People recommend lighting in the 6500k range purely because it appears fairly natural to the naked eye in a tank.

When someone is new to lighting, most people in this hobby try to steer them toward something that looks a lot like natural daylight. As the OP said, their light looks orange/yellow.
