Florescent Tube Lights which to buy??

Lumens00 on first 2 lights I bought and they were really dim. LOWES,HOME DEPOT I couldn't find one higher than 1250 Lumens?
I decided to pick one based on CRI. The higher number was suppose to be the most bright...
I picked two lights that had LOWER Lumens but HIGHER CRI.
Did I make the right choice, if NO please tell me how to identify these.
