Baffled by lights!

Well I have just started to look at a new light for my 88L as I have a new hood arriving the next couple of days and wanted an idea of cost etc.. (im in the UK).
I am completly baffled by what light is the best the get!! i was advised on a previous thread for a 20watt col temp 6500K as I would like a planted tank, however when I've looked they have hues and different types etc...I am completely baffled now!

can anyone offer some advice on what to get? Do I get a normal on or a coloured one?


The hood is 30"x12" and ill have guppies, corys, ottos and a dwarf gourami eventually
