T8 bulb. Daylight or Plant Bulb?

Hi everyone.

I have a single T8 light over my 10 gallon tank. Would it be better to use the daylight 6500k bulb from zoomed or the florasun bulb from zoomed. The flora sun bulb has a pink hue to it and i believe its around 5500k to 5700k. Ive been using the florasun bulb because it is made for max plant growth and it seems to make my fish look better. I dont know much about light but i did read the sticky about par. The plant bulb however, did not have a chart. What do you guys think?

They should both work fine for a lowlight setup. Go with the colour rendition you prefer.
