4 x T5's - Should I change what I've got?

Just been thinking about my T5 lights and wondered whether I should change them (1 or 2 or all??) to gain a wider range spectrum to suit my tank)

currently I have:
2 x marine white 14k (22' 24w) - 5hrs/d
2 x marine blue 420nm (22' 24w) - 7hrs/d

Tank spec (79f - sg1.025):
130L - 34 (US) Gals
V2 400 Protein skimmer
computer fan attached to lid
2 x koralias
1 x power head

The community:
1 x leather, polyps, Zoas, mushroom anemones, pulsing xenia.

dottyback, coral beauty, 3 x damsels, manderin, cardinal

any thoughts would be greatly appreciated!!

Are you having any issues with your bulbs currently? If not I would wait til it's time to change the bulbs and then maybe explore other possibilities.

Unless of course you have the cash and wanna explore now....but your light setup looks like what I would run. I prefer the blueish tint myself.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.
