Lighting problems/ questions for a reef tank

There is actually two parts that I need help with:

1 One of my light bulbs died on me and I want to replace all four. The problem is I don't know what to get I see alot of people getting 2 ati blu + & 2 ati aqua blue specials. Will this be good enough for my corals in my 55 gallon long? I've seen a bunch of people mentioning purple as well would there be any reason to go one blu one purple?

2 the LEDs on this light fixture keep blinking sporadically is there any way to fix this?

The LED's blinking sporadically meaning like a stone light effect? If yes then that mean A.) the LED's are going bad and need to be replaced or B.) there is a loose connection. BUT IME with LED's it usually means they are on there way out.

ATI Bulbs I would HIGHLY recommend! Color is really up to you and what type of corals you have as far what you want to pop. I'm new to saltwater but I can tell you I have ATI bulbs on my 75 gallon Cichlid tank and WHAT A DIFFERENCE!!

I have 2 aquablue specials, 1 purple plus and 1 blue plus. The colors are amazing.
