I have no idea what the difference between these are. Can anybody tell me the purpose of each of these and which one would be better for a freshwater tank? thank you in advance

6500k or 10000k will both work fine. Actinic lighting doesn't help your plants much.

6500k is a bit yellow and 10000k is a bluish white.

Personally, the colours of the tubes are really subjective. I personally find the 6500K more blue and not really yellow at all Razz

Though I agree actinic lighting won't help you much at all

Right- Blue actinic lights are mainly used for saltwater tanks.
