Best t5ho bulb combination

O I just got a nova extreme pro 6x39w t5ho system and I really hate the bulbs it came with. Can anyone help me pic out a good bulb combination? Can people perhaps say what they run on their fixture and takes a fts for reference?

I heard this was a good combo

Front

Blue Plus (ATI)
Blue Plus
Fiji Purple (KZ)
Blue Plus
75/25 (it's made by UVL, I think)
Blue Plus

Depends on whether or not you want your aquarium to be blue, white with a blue tint, blue with a white tint, or just white.

I'd add another purple instead of blue plus cuz purple really makes coral pop. But don't you think that would be too much blue.

Thanks. Seems as if 608w is just too much lighting for a 55 lol my fav is this duncan with 15 heads. I'm also picking up an elegance coral the size of a basket ball maybe even bigger! So I may give you a large frag of that. The pic is the duncan. Id frag that but I don't kno how

I'd rather you not frag something that you don't know how to, so the coral won't get hurt. Oh yeah, and I'm going to try to head out tomorrow morning to get them. Hopefully it's not raining!

I couldn't catch any sargassum fish or any triggers but I did catch these 3 really cool fish. I would've stayed longer but there were so many bad things at the beach like 3ft jellyfish and I even stepped on a stingray! I'll take a picture of the fish in a sec.

I don't need them since they may not be reef safe or they may be too aggressive.

Alright, sounds good. I'll message you tomorrow on what's happening with the frogfish. Also, do you want just 1? And if just one, do I get the biggest one I catch, or the smallest?

Smallest or maybe one around 1-2" but the largest trigger you can catch I don't want them eating my clowns lol. Oh and on second thought keep the other 3 incase you can't catch anything

Don't worry, I'm definitely going to catch something, this weekend has just been horrible. 2 weeks ago, my 2 younger cousins and I caught more than 15 fish, including frogfish, pipefish, triggers, and even filefish. It was awesome.
