Kessil and T5 question

I currently have 6 Kessil a360w tuna blue over my 300 deep dimension. I'm looking to either add T5s or switch to T5s.

I like the Kessil's but my SPS which I had for years under T5s eventually died. I've had more algae growth under the Kessils than I ever had under MH or T5. My LPS is thriving under the Kessil's.

Should I ditch the Kessil's and just go with T5s? Or add an ATI sunpower 60' 8 bulb and keep the Kessil's too?

Over the years I've run pure power compacts, pure MH, pure T5 and now pure Kessil's. I like the color of the Kessil's and controllability but I had far more success with all the other lights I've used over the years. I had more success with my power compacts even (for those of you who were around when power compact was THE light).

300g custom acrylic from James 72x36x27, 4 Mitras Lx7, 2 Stream 3s, C2C beananimal low profile overflow. 100g sump, Vectra M1 -> 114w aquauv -> SRO 5000ext w/ VarioS-6S. -> Vectra L1 return.

Current Tank Info: 300g deep dimension mixed reef
