What do the corals look like exactly? Are they faded a bit or brownish?
They're just a little faded, and it's mainly the duncans. No browning, just less vibrancy. The leathers and zoas don't show much of a visible difference other than what you would expect from the moderately warmer visual color temp given off by the 6000k LED
The cheato in on one side with the 6000k over it. The blue is more to the right. That's probably not the best scenario to test out these lights specifically for frag grow-out. There is at least one guy on YouTube using floodlights over small reef tanks. So far the videos make these lights look a little below average, but serviceable, for growing corals. I doubt they'll share the same accolades that the TaoTronics units are getting anytime soon.
