Default Thinking about ordering a fixture from AHSupply

I have a 10g tank with DIY co2 and i've been thinking about ordering a 36W fixture from ahsupply.com. I am not sure which of the bulbs to get though.. 5500k or the 6700k? Or does it not matter? Any suggestions?

Hi there! I have the exact same setup from AHSupply. I originally ordered the 6700k bulb and found it too green. The 10k bulb is very blue but the 5500k bulb seems to be the most natural bulb to me.

I've tried growing a bunch of different plants but didn't have much success.. which is why i am thinking of giving the ahsupply lights a try. I tried growing HM and HC to carpet my tank.. but it either rotted away or came loose and got sucked into the filter. Luckily, i saved some HC and HM before it all dissapered and set it in a little cone feeder i had in the top of my tank and its been growing and overflowing out into a nice big piece there. But anyways.. any more input would be appreciated.. thanks

Either bulb will work. I prefer the 6700k personally but tastes vary.
