Currently have four AI Hydra 26's, thinking of purchasing a GHL hybrid fixture which accommodates four T5 bulbs. Looking for guidance on bulb color recommendations to compliment the LEDs. Any recommendations?

I’d say ATI Blue + bulbs would be a good choice. You’ll probably do most of your color tuning through your leds.

I have been watching and researching lighting for a little while and for coral color and growth they recommended red and blue.I'm putting true acetinic and blue with my kessil to see if I get any changes on both,color and growth.hope this helps.

Just fill with four Blue+?
That’s what I would do. They provide a good amount of par and have a fairly neutral color to them. Despite the name, they only add a very light blue tint to the tank. The other option would be to run 2 blue + and 2 coral +. That’ll add more of a white look.
 

How fast does coral grow in your tank?
