Bulbs for blue glow

I am picking up two more two bulb t5 fixtures tomorrow and am wondering a few things.
1. What bulbs will give my corals the best color pop?
2. Best bulbs for growth?
3. How many of each. There will be 6 slots total.
I have gsp, mushrooms, Kenya tree, and a carpet anemone.

You probably want a 20k look then, as that's on the blue end of the spectrum

Any of them will work for growth, but the 20k look will definitely make them "pop" more

I would us the ATI lineup, but I would skip the 10k and put another aquablue special in it's place.
