LED Moon light color

I was rummaging through my electronics parts box and found a bunch of LED's. Does anyone know what the best color would be? Red and green are all I have but I can get blue. (if red works, that would be awesome seeing as I have a ton of them.)

I was going to recommend blue. Funny how that is the one you don't have.

Some white LEDs have a slight bluish tint. You may want to try that if you don't want it a deep deep blue.

I have heard red make cool moon lights. There is someone here (I think it was this site) with a salt tank and red LED's. He was saying he saw more stuff happening with the red then any other color.

I used blue but added a few white (5 to 1) to give it a little bit brighter tint.

I'm looking into some red LED's. If I can get up to Radio shack any time soon, I'll post pics of the finished project.
