    I need to replace the 4 bulbs in the T-5 fixture. I am just wondering which you would choose. I am thinking of going with 1 Actinic, 1 blue plus, 1 purple plus, and 1 coral plus. Which would you choose?

    I would not use a purple as the coral plus has plenty in it. I would do 2 blue plus a coral plus and an actinic. Just my 2 cents

    Aquablue washes stuff out. If you want it more white do two and two.

    I added a KZ- Fiji Purple and love it personally. I wish there was a cheaper option than just gambling on a light combo unless you see it in person.

    You looking or more white, or more windex?

    Even amounts of CP and BP will be around 20K. Add one more CP for a 14K... and one more BP for the blueish look that you see corals under at the LFSes in town.
