VHO bulb configuration questions.

Im planning on purchasing the VHO kit from www.hellolights.com im looking at the 4 bulb 36" fixture what bulb combinations should i go with?

I have heard that 2 daylights and 2 true attinics are a good choice. This sound right?

Most folks that I know go with the URI bulbs in a combination of 2 actinic whites and 2 actinics. The Aquasun, although they have it marked 10,000k, is a bit yellow for me. I think it's closer to a 6500 in appearance. I'm running the above combination on a 180g reef and the color is great. Whatever you get, stick with the URI bulbs.

When we had our 75g, that's what we had.
