Do vho have a "burn in" period?

I replaced my bulbs today after about 8.5 months, and was wondering if there will be any color shift as they burn in? I am not crazy about the color now-I changed from actinic w/ an aquasun to an actinic w/ a 50/50.

I think you'll find the color will grow on you, there is a burnin, but it takes much longer than with MH and it is not really noticable to us.
