Just wondering if anybody has any comments on the T8 aqueon bulb line? They have two I'm wondering about the floromax and the daylight. I'm looking for something a little brighter than the lifeglo (6700 K)I have on the tank now. I can't find a K rating for the floromax but the daylight is 8000 - is this too high a k rating for planted tank?

You'll be fine with 8000k I've frequently used 10,000 k in my tank just to balance out the yellowness on the lower rated bulbs.

I recently bought the Aqueon T8 8000 at Petsmart to go in a twin tube shoplight. The other bulb is a Phillips T8 6500. I originally had two of the Phillips in, but the light looked too yellow to me. (I have a lot of tannins in my tank). I like the 8000 a lot.
