Adding two 24” T5 XHO actinic blue to my 6 bulb ATI

I like the color of my T5 as is; thinking the reefbrites will make them much more blue.

Running 2 ati coral+, 2 blue+, one ati actinic, one geissman actinic+ (blue+ out of stock at time)

Should I add more coral+ to offset the blue from the xho? or add a tropic 6500k bulb?

You may want to get rid of the Actinic and go with another blue+.

I didn't find they added any more blue to my setup when all the bulbs were on. I was running a couple of white bulbs in mine though so that was my issue. I had them more for viewing in the evenings after the white bulbs had turned off.
 

Would you consider your tank to be balanced or lopsided when it comes to coral?
