Sorry, Another lighting question

My Tank only has room for 21" 55w PF. Due to where the tanl is, I can not hang anyMH.

I was talking to my LFS about maximixing my lights. Currently I have 2 55w 10K 50/50 PF. He said that I could try using one 55x 50/50 and one 55w all white and that I would get more use out of my 2 lights.

Any thoughts. This would give me 1 large white tube, 1 smll white tube and 1 small bue tube. Is this a good idea? Would I be hitting the full spectrum. i am not sure how important the blue antic (SP) is. Tank is 37 gal, so I am just under 3wpg, 2.97 to be exact.

I would like to eventually host corals.
