55g Reef Lighting

Well I think I am Going to go with 440 watts of VHO lighting for now because it will fit into my canopy and the cost of only $232.00.With the reflector,4bulbs,2 ballast ,endcaps,end cap mounts, wire,powercords I cant pass it up. The reflector has room for 2 mh which I will get later.But now I cant deside on bulbs. I was going to use 2 10000k URI aquasuns and URI 2 Super Actinic R but I read that the aquasuns look pink and I dont want that.So I am thinking 2 URI white Actinic which are 12000k and 2 URI Super Actinic R but I think that will be to blue. Are the coralife 10000k really blue would they be a better choice With the Super Actinic R ? Does any one have any pics of these lighting combos or know of any links where I could check them out.This is the last thing I have to order before I can set up my reef .I cant wait to get started. And thanks for all the help that people have givin me.


Thanks Bob
