Quick bulb question

http://www.petsmart.com/product/inde...385&lmdn=Brand
I found this bulb for 6 dollars and being that they normally run at 25 I bought 2. My question is what K are they? It doesn't say anywhere on the bulb what it is. It is for my 3 foot fixture, it is blue and 39 Watts.
I really appreciate the help. I hope I didn't waste money.

I would guess actinic. But, it doesn't say anywhere. How weird.

EDIT: after googling around, it appears that it is, indeed, actinic.

So noob of me but what does that mean? Just to make the tank look nice but nothing in terms of future coral plans? I think I just wasted money... at least it was on sale.
