The ATI aquablue specials are at about a 12k spectrum, the coral plus whites are at about 14k. Here is a picture of my 125g, it has 6 aquablue specials, 4 blue plus'es and 2 purples.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

I find the purple bulbs give too much purple to my tank, BUT I have coralline on every surface in the tank so I think it brings out that color even more.

Your corals will grow over either setup so it's just a matter of what you like.
