Replacement bulbs

I posted this in the new forum, but think I should have put it here.

I have had my PCs since Feb 2007. I guess it is time I changed the bulbs. I currently have:

(4) 55W 10K
(2) 55W Jebo "blue"

Question #1
Do I need to stay with the same mixture of bulbs? (I read the Jebo "blue" isn't true actinic)

Question #2
Do I have to stay with the Jebo/Odyssea bulbs or will any manufacurer's bulb work? (Suggestions encouraged)

You dont need to but it is configured decently. 4-10k and 2-supplimental. you can do 4-10k and 2 bluer bulbs. Those 4 are what give you the growing power. The other 2 are mainly for coloring.

As long as the pins and watts are the same. Straight or square pin.

Thank you for your advise.

What about the blue vs true actinic bulbs? Which ones look better?
