That'll work just fine. I would ditch the actinic white for another aqua-sun, but that is just a personal preference. It may give the tank a little more PAR as well(photosynthetically available radiation).

I`m one of those that like the super actinic and the 50/50 bulbs. As Mike said it is personal preference. I`ve had good results with the same bulb combo that you are talking about. Moved to General Hardware and equipment discussion.
