Sounds like 6 leds. The spectrum of the bulb isn't as important as the watt of the diode.
Does it have a total number of watts, or anything?

Sorry for any typos I'm at a friends house on my phone but it was three watts if I remember wide spectrum. Idk why it says 2 x blue bulbs its actually one and I got it at a fish store near me and its all 5 in one lamp set up
