I'm aware, but I have been unable to find one that will fit my fuge section. The jbj is for a nano and fits perfectly.

I don't think I'd like it. I don't like a really blue tank. For me, this is the perfect combo. I've seen some tanks that were really blue and they just don't appeal to me.

That's not true. It's all about PAR. These are all full spectrum lamps.

not really, a blue plus targets a bit of purple and green but not much green and red




here is the purple plus to compare it is more of a full spectrum then the blue
