I like my tank not to blue and not to white. I have 3 Blue plus by ATI and 1 aquablue special. This gives it amazing color but not to much blue, but corals still pop like crazy.

I wish I could remember the combo and order I used, but it was something like a pair of Blue Plus from ATI, a 75.25 from UVL and probably an AquaBlue Special. I might not have that completely correct. I toyed with a Super Actinic during that time too. I think you could nail the combo I had by trying combos of the above bulbs.

A good looking, safe combo is a pair of Blue Plus, an AquaBlue Special and a Fiji Purple or Purple Plus.
