I was experimenting with bulb colors a while back. I found that having an even ratio of deep blue and violet threw the best color for my tank. I still kept my 20k daylight halides.

I was thinking of getting the ati bulbs but not sure what to get I don't have halides only 6 t5 and some moon light LEDs for night time

I was going to keep 2 white and mix up the other 4 but was going to ask u guys 1st

I have ati blue plus bulbs as supplements for my leds. I really like the color of this bulb and I have seen noticeable increase in growth. I have 4 t5 bulbs running, but only two of those are the blue plus. I am wanting to add another blue plus and a coral plus. I tried the purple plus, really liked the color but seemed to notice an increase in cyano. I'm not sure if it was the result of the bulb or not, but I'm going to get control of the cyano before adding the purple plus bulb again.
