The PCs are fine too.
I would just go with the basic Single Ended Bulbs (Mogul) the I have a HQI (double ended) on my 20 Gal
and I don't like it way to fragile.
As for the Kelvin.. It is a highley debated topic.
for growth I would go with a 6500K (but they are very yellow) when you use PC
Actinics they will look ok. (I used these but they were just a little to yellow fo
my taste, but I know people that still use them and they have great growth)
Most people use 10000K wich is a white light looks nice with Actinics. and you will still get descent growth. (I use these on my 90)
14000K is what I have on my 20gal. It's too new to comment on their performance.
20000K is the newest trend in bulds very blue, but your corals will look awesome. If do you get 20000K then I would look at XM bulbs they are the nicest of the 20000K bulbs around. When you use Actinics with these light they will be very blue
