    Please advise me.. I am currently using a 150w 14000k blv mh and 2 reeftek actinics
    on my tank.. the bulbs need to be replaced soon. The 14000k blv doesn't bring out colours nicely. Should i add anther 2 actincs or should i go for a 20000k blv bulb with 2 12000k t5's.

    all depends on how blue you like it
    i would go with 14k MH and actinics best mix for growth and colour

    Not really worried about the blue.... but more about bring out the colour in the coral.
