I'm not sure what more you want short of us ordering the bulbs for you.

If you read the replies by logan and myself you'll see we both suggested 2 actinics and 2 white daylights (~10K).

[quote]It has 2x39w daylight whites

so what are they 6500k? 10000k? 11000k?

[quote]find some daylight bulbs that were whiter than 6500k

what does that mean?

I was also told that 6500k would make the tank look yellow
I just wanted help picking the right bulbs. there are so many choices, I dont want to get the wrong one then have to buy a different replacement

The higher the kelvin rating of the bulb, the more blue to violet will be emited giving the tank a whitish/blue appearance.
10,000 k



The lower the kelvin, the more red, yellow and green spikes in the spectrum the bulb emits giving the tank a yellow appearance.
6500 k


Cheers
Steve
