Default Re: Grow light recommendations?

Oh and just to add, I've tried led's instead of cfl's and had terrible results. Cfl's have easy color spectrum led's are way more complicated.

If you use cfl's 6500k is for vegetative growth and 2700k is for fruiting. But 6500k is usually best unless your growing for profit (different hobby). This all carries over to aquatic plants fyi except you need to take into account the depth of water.
So far:
Dwarf Cavendish -- Basjoo -- Bunch of Truly Tiny
