Good lights

I'm looking for a better light bulb for my 30 gal. I'm looking something a brighter white/ blueish color. The light bulb I have now looks more yellowish. Any suggestions?

Higher color temp. A 10,000k bulb will be more white with a hint of blue. The higher the color temp, the bluer the light.

6500K - 10000K is good.
