Colormax t5 bulb

I was wondering if anyone has used the colormax bulb with tiger barbs or African chiclids I have a coralife 2x39w fixture and am using a 6700k and a 10000k bulb but need to replace them and was thinking about doing the colormax with either the 6700k or the 10000k but didn't know which setup would look better or if I should just stay with what I have any help I would appreciate it thanks

Welcome to AA!

I've used a Colormax in conjunction with a 6700K bulb over a planted guppy tank. It really made the metallic blue on the fish pop compared with two 6700K bulbs. Whether that's better or not is really up to you.
