    I need to replace my lights and was wondering what was more like real sun light, 5500k or 6500k?

    If you are asking about it for UVB,... neither.

    I think that may be a trick question. I don't know for certain about either bulbs lights visual color or brightness but I do know the sun has infinite variations as we see it. Where it is in the sky, the atmosphere it is penetrating, the season. I think you are up to your own preference. Probably try them both out and see which gives the enclosure the feel you want it to have or highlights certain colors better.
