T5 bulbs of choice?

Since I got this new fish tank I have been thinking about trying some new bulbs. My other tank has ATI bulbs. They are good I guess my corals like them. Currently there are a bunch of UVL bulbs in the new light.

I need 6 T5 bulbs. Is there a brand that others like more then another. What colors do you like?

Big favorites with everything that I have read have been ATI bulbs in terms of white and blue. When it comes to purple, many prefer the fiji purple bulb.

If it were my tank, I'd have a 14k, 2 blue plus, 1 aquablue special, and 1 fiji purple. I say this because i have these very bulbs sitting in my living room due to upgrading to LED before they arrived.

ATI is considered best
