12k or 10k daylight?

I was planning purchasing some lights off ebay. going to get odyseas 4x65 watt power compact setup for my 55 gallon.

I wanted to get 2- 10k daylight and 2 actinic, but the seller only has the 12k ones not 10k.

is it perfectly fine to go with those? will i notice a diference?

i can hold off, but just wanted to get your guys opinions.

thanks!

jay D

I do not think you will notice a difference between the 10 and 12K

The 12k PC that I have are a cool blue. I have them mixed with 10k and Actinic03.
The water has a fine blu-ish hue to it. Looks great! I went thru many bulbs trying to find the right color I was looking for.

10,000k is white.
6700k is kinda yellow. More like the sun-yellow.
