Lighting question.

I have recently purchased a t5 fixture with two bulbs. I have an ultra sun daylight 6500k. And ocean sun 10k. I have been told that the 6500 will cause algae probs. My other option to replace it is with another 10k or a 420 actinic. I have a 30gal tank with Zoa's and mushrooms. The lights about 8in from the water what should I replace it with?

Actinic...and you'd be best off replacing the 10k with something higher like a 14k but its not a must
