Biocube 14

After doing several forum searches on this topic, am I correct in the assumption that JBJ and other straight pin config PC bulbs will work in Biocube 14? I really need to get a 6500K bulb in over the stock 10000K daylight bulb. I also understand that you can use a 28watt bulb in the 24watt fixture in that the ballast controls the output? I appreciate any clarity on this issue.

Why do you need a 6500K bulb? And as far as I know the ballasts aren't made to handle larger wattages than supplied, but I could be wrong on that part.
Either way, as long as it's straight pin any other straight pin will work fine.
