Something between 6700 and 10000k with 6700 looking more yellow and the 10000k looking more blue. Depends what you like.

From where the sun now stands, I will fight no more forever.

To add to Rich's advice, there is no need to buy the specialty aquarium bulbs from the LFS, you can get just as good of bulbs from your local hardware store at lot less expensively.
