What bulbs to buy?

I plan on buying a 2 x 55 watt Bright Kit from ahsupply. The only thing I need some help with is what kind of bulbs to buy for it. I see they sell bulbs also but are they any good? I plan on keeping plants like anubias, crypts, java fern.

I would go with the 6700K. What size tank do you have? Are you doing a fully planted tank?

I have a 50 gal tank, and I hope to have a fully planted tank eventually.
