Lighting and stocking question

Ok guys. Two questions here:

1. I have blue and white LED's on my biocube. My question is, is it ok to keep just the blue or "more" of the blue on as opposed to the white?

2. As far as stocking, what is everyone's honest opinion about maximum number of fish? I'd like to to do 7. I have two black oc's clowns, a watchman goby, hasslet goby, six line and red elongated dottyback. I like to add a firefish. I do weekly 20% or so water changes, have a fuge and a protein skimmer. There is also 32 pounds of liverock if that matters.

I think that's a lot of fish for a 29. if you have photosynthetic creatures in your tank you'll need to provide enough light for them. Otherwise, you can run solid blues if you like. The fish don't care. They just need to see to eat.

I'd stay away from a firefish if you have a six line wrasse in the tank, the firefish may get bullied.
