This question is general for all types of coral.

Does red and green light have any effect on growth? Or does it only help see coral color better. I currently have two taotronics leds over my tank but they only have blues and whites and the only color that pops in the tank is green...everything else is just drowned out by the blue i think. Will adding green and reef help other colors pop or how do i achieve that look where everything glows much more?

Also to answer your question on your white and blue
Here is one of my client's "taotronics" white and blue on his tank.


And here is what his tank looks like after switch to
my fixture that has Warm white and Royal blue. You don't have to have green/red LED to make your tank look better, warm white does contain higher red and green spectrum in them already and royal blue is a lol closer to purple/violet (not true violet as violet start from 400nm down to about 350nm) I think Royal blue is 450nm.
