PC and T5 set up

I have a 4x55W and would like to add a 48" T5 bulb on each side.

Here are my options:

Have all 10k pc bulbs and actinics 03 for T5

Have two 10K pc bulbs, two actninc pc bulbs and 2 12K T5 bulbs.

Basicly what do you think, what color should my T5's be???

I think this is completely up to you..

if you want more 03.. get it..
if you want to "warm" the lighting up.. get a 6500K..
