I run my actinics for about 12 hours a day and the halides for about 8.

As for bulb preference it all depends. As long as you get a good bulb that supplies enough light then you should be fine. Some bulbs like the xm15k actually put out less light then 20k counterpart. Looking at the stickies at the top of the lighting and filtration forum can give you a good idea of intesity ratings.

I personally like the look of the reeflux 12k bulbs. Those plus 4 pc actinics would give a nice color.

Are they single ended?
