    If it's only two bulbs then I would probably go for the Pure Actinic and the Aqua Blue Plus.

    Aquablue+ is a white light 10000K
    Actinic pure is pure actinic light. I is a purple looking light (03)
    Actinic + is a blue light.

    Most T5 ballasts are dual ballasts and run 2 tubes at a time. Ou can run them all together or you could run the actinics a little bit longer to try and simulate a soft start.
