Acan + PC lighting =color?

Wondering this.

I came across some rainbow acan's, i have 24g nanocube, with PC lights. (upgrade next week from nanocustoms ) will be 3x36w.

I seen the rainbow acans under t5's looked great. Will i get the same color out of under PC's?

Was thinking of running atnic, 50/50, 50/50. Will i still get their great color?

ive never been a huge fan of pcs color capability but youll probably get nice chubby colonies out of them.

LPS will look good under PC but probably not as good as T-5.
I kept LPS under PC's for months and now I have T-5's I would never go back. Things are much more puffy and colorful.
