My odyssea quad t5

I just bought a odyssea quad t5 and it came configured with the 2 actinic bulbs in the back and the 2 10,000k bulbs in the front. Would it make more sense to move the bulbs in an every other manner so that it would go 10,000k, actinic, 10,000k, actinic. Seems to me like that would create more even light distribution instead of all the blue light in the back and all the white light in the front.

I'd probably do that. It will probably blend the colors together better
