Don't know if the link will work but here is what ATI recommends for bulb combinations. http://www.atinorthamerica.com/faq.php In addition to their page you can do a google search; there are several threads on reefcentral.com about this topic.

I would switch out one bulb a week till they are all switched out.

Good Luck.

I would run with (3) Blue+, (2) Coral+, (1) Purple+
That would be my input... :D
