I am at a fork in the road. I have two sets of MH bulbs right now..........14k Current bulbs which have great par but are kinda crisp white......they are about 4 months old. And I have brand new aquamaxx 14k bulbs that are a week old, but insane blue with a lower par level. Question is.......should I go back to the current bulbs that I was running without a problem and supplement with T5HO actinics.......or continue to use the aquamaxx bulbs and supplement with T5HO 10K. Im torn as to which one to do......I want searious growth with decent colors.

Well I ended up buying a new T5HO fixture with one super actinic and one 10k to supplement the two 150 de 14k current usa bulbs. I think it will offer a little more par and give me better growth in the long run. Eventually.....im going to buy 10k icecap 150watt de bulbs and supplement with 2 super actinic T5HO.
