What are the benefits to running full spectrum LED's Vs. Just blue & whites? Which does everyone prefer? And why?

IMO Full spectrum is eye candy it will brighten some colors but it's not needed to grow corals All you really need are the blue. The rest just lets us see the pretty colors.

I have three full spectrum and one b/w I like the full spectrum look better. Seeing the same growth when there set low you see a pinkish hue but when you turn them up it's nice and crisp.
