That was a really good read. That clears things up alot. And I fully agree with the fiji purple being > than the ati purple. Def wouldn't need more blue/purp spectrum if you are using the blues.

So what would you think about 2 blue plus, an aqua blue special, and a fiji purple?

i like that combo, it might be a little less blue then mine because my daylight is a 14000k where as the ATI is 12000k but it should look good and do what you want it to do

I found Fiji's on bulkreefsupply (Search results for: 'fiji purple'), but they don't list sizes of the bulbs. I need 36 for my T5 unit and I know there are both smaller and larger sizes of bulbs.

39w is a 36" T5HO.

I'm really loving the color combo I have with an aquablue special, blue plus, coral plus, and purple plus.

looks good, much bluer and it doesn't have a dullish kind of look, i guess the coral plus contrasts well with the purple plus

It does. I'm bedridden right now with a bad stomach bug, but once I'm mobile again, I'll try and get a shot of the coral plus beside the purple plus. It definitely makes the tank look more clear... of course, my crappy picture takin skills might be a big factor there. Overall, I'm glad I got it. It's definitely not too blue, but it's blue enough. I don't like a really blue tank.
