My head is spinning- 2 bulb T5 HO combos

It's about time to change the bulbs on my FOWLR and I was looking into the ATI and UVL bulbs, but I have no idea which ones to go with because I'm extremely limited with 2 bulbs. I don't want an overpowering white look, I like more of a bluish look. I was thinking 1 blue plus and 1 purple plus, or 1 UV super actinic and one blue plus. But I have no idea because there's hardly anyone that has 2 bulb fixtures in other threads. Anyone with these brand bulbs, please help! Thanks

I would just go with 1 10000k and an actinic blue. Its a good standard that works well and looks good.

I thought about that, but I think that is even a bit too white for my taste. I think I'm going with a blue+ (acting as an actinic) and a purple+

The blue plus and purple plus is a PERFECT combo!! All of my fish look like highlighters! Especially yellows, blues and oranges!
