Bulb replacement question

Have an aquaticlife 8 bulb fixture over my 150g reef tank. The stock bulbs need replacing, and I want to replace with ATI bulbs. Should I do 4 12000k, 2 actinics, 2 blues. Or 4 12000k 4 blues. Or 4 12000k 4 actinics???? I don't know which would be best. Should I maybe get 2 purples? Do they look good? What would be the best for the corals????

I just pulled the trigger for my 125gal. 8-bulb 80watts a piece.

Here are the ATI bulbs I ordered:

FRONT
Blue Plus
Blue Plus
Purple Plus
Aquablue Special
Blue Plus
Blue Plus
Purple Plus
Aquablue Special
BACK

I'll post pictures when I get them in, but I assume it'll be a week or so.

Here's a video I saw earlier, mine will basically be the same color scheme as this one:
