I use 6500K on my planted aquarium. I have them in the garage, as well. I find them a bit harsh & blue. I will step back to 5000K next time. I had to drop to less than that in the house.

Had to? Dropped back? It's a color choice isn't it?

My eyes didn't really like it. Probably why you chose warm white.

6.5K is brighter than daylight. Typical TV studio lighting is 3200K, Daylight film used to be made for 5700K (do they make film anymore?) I think fluorescents are around 5K. Filters we used to correct were blue for daylight, amber for studio (tungsten) and kind of green for fluorescent. I did a shoot one time where we actually gelled a window to get the right color temperature to match TV lights we had set up in a living room. Newer cameras digitally correct color, so it is no longer as critical as it used to be.
I just bought some recessed retrofit cans from Superbrightleds to put in bedrooms at 4K. Side by side with a 3k, they look white. I also have those lights Jim and Jim were talking about in my pavilion.. It will be a garage someday.
