New lighting!

Or a pretty decent deal on Craigslist and was hoping for some advise on what bulb/color/temp
I should use. The fixture is a coral life duel 175watt metal halides with 2 98 watt pc's
I paid $60 for this with the ballasts and they do work. I currently have t5 lighting and am excited to switch to the halides. Was thinking 14k for the halides but have never had halides so am just not sure what I should use thanks!

Yes, I used a 250w here's a pic although it's hard to really tell what color a tank will look to the eye.
