VHO bulb k question.

I now have 2x24" vho 1 ultra sun 10k and 1 super actinic. I need to replace them soon and want a more blue look. Any recomendations? Would 1 actinic and 1 50/50 make it more blue? Any suggestions, comments welcome.

Yes 1 actinic and 1 50/50 would give you more of a blue look. Be careful as there is a delecate balance IMO between to little and to much blue. You could try a different brand of bulbs also.
