I prefer the 6700K bulbs. Their light output seems closest to natural sunlight.

IMHO, the 5400K bulbs are too yellow. To see what I mean, the Perfecto SHO lights
advertised in the magazines seems to be using these yellowish 5400K bulbs. Also, the 
"Antinic" are too blue and have too narrow of a color spectrum for use in a planted
tank. (Unless you mix the bulbs...)
