What color bulbs?

So I am getting an aquatic life 6 bulb fixture.

What color coordination of bulbs should I do?

Has anyone heard of a reef purple I think is what someone was calling it. They said it really made the corals pop and I've never seen them
Before. Also. How would you place them? Like blue blue white white blue blue? Or what

The most important thing if you are talking corals is intensity or par. How many watts are your bulbs? It does not make a difference what color if you dont have the intensity. What type system?

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.
