So I'm using a 2-175 10k metal halide fixture over my aquarium. i'm also using the two actinic bulbs that came with it. Is it fine to use the actinic? ....the light is really yellow without it.

As long as your MH lights are meeting the base lighting requirements, actinics are fine. There is some evidence supporting the benefits of actinic for supplementary lighting, but only after main lighting needs are met. Not gonna get into it for fear of starting another war, but at the very least, you'll have a more aesthetic look ;)
