Adding Supplementary LED's

Okay, so I want to add some UV/Purple LED's to my moonlighting on my 10G.

On my current LED fixture the moon lighting/actinic lighting is provided by 27 LED's. These are 3w each and are in the 460nm spectrum.


The tank is just far too blue with not a whole lot of fluorescence. This is why I want a supplement.

I don't know whether I should go with UV LED's (400nm) or a Magenta/Pink colour.

I feel as if the UV just won't be visible over the 27 Royals..

In my search, I've found these 10pcs 3W UV 400nm 410nm Purple High Power Bright Ultra Violet LED Lamp Bead Light for DIY Aquarium 3Watt-in LED Bulbs & Tubes from Lights & Lighting on Aliexpress.com | Alibaba Group

But I have no clue on how I would go about linking them up.

I could stick them to the underside of my current fixture but I've no experience with this sort of stuff.


So, should I go with UV or Magenta and what wattage LED's should I be looking at?

I was rather delusional while thinking this up..
