T8 Bulbs - Which Is Best For Planted Tank

I was just looking for some advice on T8 bulbs. I recently set up a 48in worklight with two ZooMed Plant Gro bulbs which says they are 5000k.

The first question I have is,

The lights I bought were 21.99 each, yet at home depot they have 5000k and 6500k bulbs for 10.00 for 2.
Is there anything that is special about the zoomed lights or for that matter the coralife plant bulbs, do they do anything else special to them,

or is a 5000k light a 5000k light.

Second question I had was,

What is the best light value for a fully planted 75gl tank that is 48x21x18.
