Try it and see. Use whichever bulb looks acceptable on its own, which will probably be the 6,500K. Make sure you still get a decent light distribution, if it's too uneven from front to back, you may find going back to the CFLs preferable.

Fuzz is a bit resistant to H2O2 in my experience, but it can be killed with it.
Great! Yeah I highly doubt it'll be a 50% reduction in growth, I was getting decent growth with the 20W CFLs and most of the light was escaping out of the sides. Should I reduce my EI Dosings as well? I'm dosing for a 10-20g.
