ATI Bulb combo question

Just got new ATI bulbs for xmas! I've been messing around with different combos since I got 6 bulbs but only need 4. Right now I have 2 actinics and 1 aquablue special, 1 blue plus. Can I take the aquablue special out and have 2 actinics and 2 blue pluses? With the aquablue special it seems to "white". I just want to make sure it will be ok for the corals....

I would have some sort of white bulb in the rotation.

I use aquablue specials for my whites and the blue plus's for my actinics. I happen to like a blue tank so that works out for me pretty well.

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

I would skip the actinics as well. specials and plus's. They are all full spectrum lamps and there's no need for an actual actinic lamp.
