Lighting Suggestions!

Okay, so it's time to replace my aquarium light bulbs. I currently have two compact fluorescent bulbs, Hamilton Technology 65w PC ACT BLUE 460 NM and a 10k SUPER DAYLIGHT. I'm wondering if there is better bulbs than the ones I'm using that could benefit my coral growth and my fish happiness. Thanks

I don't know about pc bulbs but I would try and replace one of them with, a daylight bulb(50/50, uvl aqua sun, Fiji purple plus,14000k high PAR) this is just examples and some type of actinic bulb like the one you have.

Do they have those types of bulbs that you mention in power compacts. I've been doing research and I haven't come across anything but the actinic blue.
