When I used florescent lights I ran blue white blue white , it all depends on what you intend on keeping this particular arrangement of lights worked great for softies and lps.

so you know florescent s should be replaced at least once a year aprox $30. per bulb that's $120. per year . thats a lot of cash

for what you pay for the light fixture and bulbs in a year , you can get a good led set up for that , and they will last around 10yrs without ever needing to replace a bulb ,

just keep the dust out of the fan motors along with cleaning any salt residue off the fixture and lens. I had mine 5 yrs already and love them , I need to replace one of the fan motor as it burned out . but I keep my fans running 24/7

its a simple computer fan a very cheap fix about $10., I'm lucky I have many floating around the house from older computers . the best part is you wouldn't have to upgrade to a better light for SPS

They come in different colors
