T5+Reefbrite LED combinations

Hello Folks,

I currently have an ATI T5 lamp. I am looking to add an Reefbrite LED strip lamp to complement the T5's. I am however, somewhat confused, as to what is the best way to go about it. I'm currently thinking of adding an XHO blue lamp, with the thought that this will make the color pop the most. What I'm having mixed feelings with, is what T5 bulbs would be the best complement. Anyone have experience that can share?

I currently have a 6 bulb T5 fixture with a XHO on the sides of it. My T5 combo is Blue+, Blue+, Purple, Coral+, Blue+, Blue+. I'm very happy with look of the tank with that combo. I hope this helps some.

They are both blue. Sorry I don't have any pics of them. Basically it is the T5 fixture flanked by a XHO on the sides. The XHOs are not mounted on the T5 fixture. I mounted those inside the canopy and the T5 fixture sits on top of the canopy's opening.
