Welcome to MASA Christo :)
Are you talking about the fiji purple bulbs (KZ)? The correct method of setting up these bulbs are 2 whites to 1 puple.
So try this out :
1*Blue
2*White
1*purple...........
Get the rhythm?

Oh and i will defniatley go more width rather than height.You can create a more natural looking reef IMO :)
