Actinic questions!

I have been using dual actinics for a while. I ordered 460s, will they bring out more colors? My buddy told me to get 420s, but I figured I'd try em once. Any pros/cons considering actinic spectrums?

I'm assuming you mean the bulbs peak at 420 or 460. Are these no, cf, VHO or T5? What exactly did you order and what did you have before?
T5's have a vast array of different color "blues" you can use. It's up to what loooks best to you. Actinics alone have little affect on coral growth.
