Sorry, Just curious how blue the tank will look with 14000k mh and a singe 60 inch actinic bulb or maybe two. I currentky have 10000k bulbs and a single actinic bulb and none of my corals or shrooms light up and glow like they should, thinking of going to 14000k for the simple reason of trying to make my critters true colors come out. These coralvue 10000k are completely white, any oppinions would be appreciated.

I run CV 2x250 14k w/2x110w VHO -the tanks looks nice w/ just the MH, but with the actinics on also it looks alot better. They definitely add "pop" to the corals' colors.
