T5 Spectralux 6500K "BLUE"

Does anyone have experience with these Spectralux LED T5 bulbs? I bought two t5 fixtures that came with these Spectralux 6500K BLUE bulbs. I was wondering why they are called "blue" when the light they emit looks yellowish. Do these "blue" bulbs cause algae growth?

Blue lights usually do grow more algae. But let me do some research on those lights and I will let you know.
