Bulb Question

Are actinic bulbs ok to use in a freshwater plant tank?  I want to put in
some red plants and one actinic bulb was recommended for them. Do red plants
like a lot of blue light?  So that this bulb does not give me a blue tank
using one "red" and one "50/50" bulb was recommended to offset the actinic.
How does this sound?  What bulbs are considered "red" bulbs?  Other than
Coralifes 50/50 bulb, what are some other bulbs that fit the 50/50 bill?
Thank you in adavance for the help.
