The amazon/ebay popbloom blue bars will give you pop without the major hit to your wallet. I use a blue and a full spectrum bre to grow my colorado sunburst nems.
You could use two pieces of aluminum angle iron. Cut to reach a little over the front and back of the ati fixture. Then screw the led bar mount brackets to it. The bars will balance each other out, letting them to hang and be angled to best light the system.You can also zip tie the led bars to the ati, which is how I have mine lol.
but if youre not looking for increased par and just the pop. looks at the truelumen led strips. not sure if they are still around but the stunner leds were amazing for pop.i run a hybrid fixture. i think the best mix for me for pop with t5s alone are 2 blue plus, 1 actinic, and 1 purple blus. the blue plus alone are great but the red in the purple plus helps to balance out the green which helps with pop. but as stated above you wont be able to replicate a pop from led actinics. t5s are very flat looking to be. i love the combo look with leds though.
