How the 420nm look?? I want LEDs mixed with 420&460??
Personally I think the 420 would look nicer cause they are more purple like black light making your corals stand out more, do you see a diff?

I think the purple makes my corals pop more than the blues did. Anyways I like the purple especially with my 20k halides on with them
