Flora Sun Bulbs and Emporer Filters

I am getting ready to set up a 30gallon planted tank. I was wondering if any body knows anything about theZoo Med Flora Sun bulbs for plants, it is rated at 8500k. also I already bought a Emporer 280 power filter and have it up and running, would this not be a very good choice for a planted tank??

the Zoo Med Flora Sun bulb is not nessisary.. the hardware or department store should have daylight bulb rated for 6500K for about 1/3 the price or less, in the light bulb isle..
They also have a 5500K bulb as well.. for the same price.. it depends on if you like the redish/yellow color of the 5500K bulb or the bluish color of the 6500K bulb..
The Emporer 280 will be just fine if you dont plan on having CO2 injection..
btw.. You live close to me! I live in Richmond!! :P
