I have a 8x54 tek going from a 4 bulb fixture and need some I'm put I know it's a well talked about subject but can't find to much on this topic with resent info. I currently have
ATI 3x Blue+
ATI 1x Coral+
ATI 1x Purple +
ATI 1x Aqua blue
I don't want it to blue of a colour but want the reds,orange,yellows to stand out aswell in the corals. So what other bulbs should I get?

I'd add another Coral Plus and an Actinic. On the next bulb change I'd get rid of the ABS and either another Actinic or another Coral Plus depending on your color preferences.

Yeah, I like Coral Plus and Blue Plus. When I added an Actinic to my tank I was like "Where have you been all my life?!" I haven't used an actinic for about 5 or 6 years, and forgot how awesome it was. With so many bulbs you really don't have to worry about less PAR of the actinic. I have one in my 6-bulb, and channel 2 only runs at 70% - all SPS. The actinic bulb doesn't last long though - mine is only 6 months old, and I bought a new one to replace it with already. Honestly, about 3 months in I wanted to replace it. Maybe I got a bum bulb.

ATI is good. I liked UVL Super Actinic the best but can't find it any longer.
