When I get new zoas they look amazing at the store. After a day or two in my take the colors fade a little. But don't worry the colors come right back

I'd ditch the 50/50 and run a coral + instead, I'd also swap out the actinics for either 2 blue + or 1 b+ and a purple + depending on how you like the color of your tank (I like pretty blue with t5s) and if you feel either of those combos are to bright you can use one of the actinic bulbs instead of a blue (shouldn't be to bright with only 4 bulbs though)

2 c+ and 2 b+ will give you a 14k look (moderately blue) or my personal favorite combo on 4 bulb units is 1 c+ and 3 b+, gives a nice crisp look IMO, or if want a 20k look (pretty blue) p+ and 3 b+

Sounds good. I'm due for a bulb change so I think I will go with that combo. ATI seems to have very good reviews
