I think 6500Ks or 6700Ks are more yellowish then 10000Ks. 65Ks mostly used on freswater setups, because they plants, fishes etc.. do not require as much of blue and white spectrums as saltwater species. 10K is a beautiful tune of colors, in my op. I have a power compact 65/10 K combined, mixed with 420/460 actinic. Without the actinics on the 65/10K not as nice as the 10K would be by itself. But combined with the actinics give a great spectrum for me and for my livestock. I think you should have stay with the 10K, I wouldn't bother mess with the 67Ks. 10Ks also more "official" for anykind of saltwater creature. 420nm actinics will certainly more purple then 460s. Be lucky!
