what t5 light combo do you use

I purchased an Odyssea 24" 4 bulb T5 fixture. I like the fixture but from what I've read, the bulbs are not that good as far as color goes. It has 2- 10,000k white bulbs and 2- actinic bulbs. I've never owned a T5 set up but the actinic bulbs do look too white to me. Also, I've read a lot of posts saying that you should go with at least 15 or 20,000k white bulbs to get more blue light. I've looked at ATI bulbs and there are so many choices...aquablue special, blue plus,purple plus,coral plus, true actinic...Any suggestions on a set up for this fixture ? Should I have mostly blue. Do I need white. This is a picture with just the actinics on...
