    Depends on your taste. Do you like a slightly more blue tank, a very blue tank, more of a white colour etc.

    I must admit prefer the blue look more than the white.

    I have an 8xT5 unit and running 4blues,2 whites and 2 pinks. Its too white for my liking so will add another blue just for colours to pop. I'm running normal tubes as I cant afford fancy name brands. Corals are growing fast and are healthy so I'm happy.
