The thing with T5s is you can mix and match the color to get the "look" you want in your tank. As for growth it is going to come regardless. My suggestion is to go with what makes your tank look the way you want it too.

The combination listed is going to improve growth but you may not like the look. Those bulbs aren't cheap. If you like what you have now wait til it is time to replace your bulbs and then switch them up. It's taken me nearly 3 years to get my bulb combination to the point that I'm really happy.
