    Which would be better

    6500K or 4200K?

    Depends what you're wanting to grow in it? Wattage would probably be more important.

    I would go for 6500K as it is closer to the suns colour temp at water surface - read it somewhere :p
    If I remember correctly, the 5000K globes were "cool white" and the 6500K globes were "daylight".
    Or do I suffer from early altzheimers? :p
