    I think a 50/50 is 1 actinic and 1 6500 so 1 PC bulb has 2 tubes joined right.

    and then the second bulb could be anything you want but IMO a solid 6500 or 10K would be best.

    Again I really didn't like the 10K. But I know there are new different lights out now that may have improved the colour
