Thoughts on Arcadia T5 Lights

Hi. I want to upgrade my lights. I don't have a huge amount to spend. I have a Juwel Vision 180 (that's 180 litres). Currently I just have one white and one actinic blue T5 in the Juwel light ballast. Each is 35w. Also using reflectors. I have a few soft corals that are doing well. What is the feeling on Arcadia 39w T5's? (Arcadia T5 Starter Units | Indoor Aquatic Supplies). I'd put is one double tube setup so effectively I'd double my lighting. My LFS says that would be good enough for LPS and some plating corals. What do you guys think? Also...what about a Fiji purple tube? Are they any use/benefit? They certainly seem to show fish & corals colours really well.
