Lighting???????? Which bulbs?

I am using the Current USA PC 4x65w 260w on my 55g. I am going to replace the bulbs and trying to figure out which to buy? I provided links to each if you want to look at them. I am going to get 2 Dual Actinic 420/460nm SunPaq along with those I am trying to figure out if I should get 2 Dual Daylight 6700/10,000 SunPaq or 1 6700 and 1 10,000 or 2 6700 or 2 10000. What is the best option between those? I currently have 2 420/460 and 2 6700's.

Moved to General Hardware and equipment discusion forum. I like the super actinic and 50/50 combo. That`s what I`ve used in my tank for 11+ yrs now.

So you suggest 2 50/50 and 2 420/460? or 4 50/50's? I have been using SuPaq's is there a better brand? What is in the 50/50?
This is what they offer for 21" Bulbs http://www.marinedepot.com/lighting_..._bulbs-ap.html or http://www.petsolutions.com/Default....oryID=40001630

I run VHO`s but yes 2 of those 50/50 and 2 of those super actinic. That`s what I`ve had the best luck with but I`m sure there are others that are equally as happy with their combo.

I was thinking 2 420nm/10000K 50/50 and 2 460nm/10000K 50/50. I was thinking that 2 50/50's and 2 420nm/460nm would be 2 much blue? or I could go 2 420nm/460nm Actinic Power Compact and 2 Dual Daylight 6700K/10000K. There are just so many combo's that can be done. I am so confused as what to do, LOL!
