I see most people here get either 6700K as their first choice, 10000K as second

I'm wondering, if you could only get one bulb say for a 1x36w setup, would you guys go with 6700 10 or maybe the 5500? I don't see many people going with the 5500 and was wondering why that is?

5500K looks like piss. It's too yellow. 10000K tends to wash a few colors out...and 6700K tries to be in-between, but is still too yellow for me...I like ADA's 8800K bulbs. ;)

I use those bulbs. The K for these bulbs is a bit deceptive. They cast a pleasant pink hue. Some peple like this some don't. The plants like it. I think they work best in combination with other bulbs like 6700K. So they may not be the right single bulb solution for you.
