I my self run ATI AquaBlue special as primary bulb than ATI Blue Plus to add some kalvin and I was running atinic but switched for Korallen Fiji purple,and the fiji's looked really good so I switched out a primary for more fiji so I have 14, 39w and 6 are fiji 2Blue+ and 6 Aqua blue sp . I always buy a couple spare so you can test whats appealing to you .My gallery is before the fijis were in I'm still waiting to lower my lights from the bulb change, then I'll up date pics,T5's rock so many options good luck
