None of the above. All those actinics will give a lot of pop, but not necessarily the best overall color, or growth. Plus, with 6500K whites and a Fiji Purple, the tank is going to look yellow/red. Try this

 

Blue+

Fiji Purple

Blue+

Super Actinic

 

Much more balanced with more PAR, more overall color, but still a decent amount of pop.

I like a lot of "pop" and this gives it with still great par. but I'm no expert...
