lighting- need opinion

I have a reef tank with 6 fishes. I have a lot of LPS, SPS softies, couple clams, zoas mushrooms all varieties. For 4 years I use 150w 10.000K MH and 4 54w T5 460 and 420nm. All Current brand. I'd like to change now. I asked you about good T5 brand and also look on internet. It looks like ATI is way to go. So I want to buy Phoenix 14.000K and T5 by ATI. But ATI makes "Aquablue"," Blue Plus", "True Actinic". Do you guys have any expierience with them? Which way should I go? Not too yellow not too blue... I want the colors to pop... Thanks...
