I have 2* 36w pll .temp 6500k

Now I want to improve lighting set up and provide a high light for demanding plants as my plants are not showing their actual colors .

Kindly advise me should i add another 8000k t5h0 with this set up.
Or 60 w led tube.

Please suggest what will be best option.

My Flora list -
Limnophila Aromatica
Rotala Nanjensan

Hydrocotyle Honda
alternanthera reineckii lilacina
Pogostemon stellatus
Pogoatemon erectus
Hygrophilia Difformis
Alternanthera Sessilis

I just have started exactly same size tank this month with all High light stems. Using 33 watt Sanrise LED.

Here is the thread,

On a different note, 2x36watt PLL with a good reflector is more than enough to grow anything in that tank.
