Where does 8000k lay?
I just replaced a fluorescent bulb on my 5.5g and replaced it with a 8000k full spectrum light. Where would this stand on a scale of Low-High light demanding plants? I know that the 6000k range is good for low light plants and that 10000k is good for Reef Tanks........so what's the gradient? Lower K value the higher intensity or vice versa? I'm use to reef lighting where normally higher K is better (more along the blue spectrum).
Any help would be great! It's a 14W bulb on a 5.5g
