alright here goes.

i ordered 2 65w PC actinic lights and they shipped me 2 65w PC 20000k 450nm instead, if i use these do you think think things will work well

They may be marketing them differently, but if I remember correctly, 450nm or 420nm are actinics. I haven't looked at PC bulbs in awhile, so not sure.

I beleive Eric is correct. Mainly it is just to add color to your tank, so I would fire them up and see how the color is. If it looks good then you are set, if not, maybe find a different bulb.
