Default Which compact light to use?

What is your opinion for a freshwater planted tank - 5500 or 6700 lights?
Anyone have an opinion?

Whichever you think looks nicer. I prefer 6700 myself.

I've spent years, no decade looking at light color and plant growth.

The result is sick: warm white seems to work best. Never mind it's cheapest
as they make so damn many of then, there's enough scientific papers out there
that say "we tried a bunch of bulbs and none work as well as warm white".

Get whateevr's on sale. It doesn't really matter at the end of the day.
