From the picture it is realy hard to tell real color since no camera renders color 100% as the human eye sees it. I also do not like the fact that there is so much drop off from top to bottom, and think they need more lighting on this tank than what the picture shows.

For lighting this and getting close I would use all ATI bulbs with 1 Purple Plus, 1 Aqua Blue Special, and the remaining 6 bulbs as Blue Plus. But your light intensity will probably be a lot more than what is in the picture.
