It shouldn't be a problem. Do you have corals? What size tank and how many watts are your bulbs?

You`ll be Ok as the 10K is half actinic anyway. Sure would help to know what the wattage is.

a 4 lamp t8?? hmm that i haven't seen before there is a general rule of thumb that you need 3-4 watts per gallon for soft corals

as far as my research show an actinic has a kelvin rating of about 50000k so a 10000k is far from half actinic
