    The 2nd tube seems the best for planted tank. The lumens are at 3350 and the color temp at 6500K.
    Cheers!!

    i've been using 3800K MV for my 2ft tank, no problems with plants
    apparently it's more the intensity plants look out for, imo
    the CRI is important for achieving true colour tho
    MV is very bad at that
