So should we get blue/white or pay a little more and get full spectrum ones

It doesn't really matter. It's just personal opinion of what you like on your tank. They are supposed to both grow corals well.

Looks good to me. I've heard great things. I would talk to Carey if you want more information on them. She uses them a lot. My LFS happens to use them on some of their tanks and they look great!

But all the "bells and whistles" are completely unnecessary. It's like putting a chrome package on your bike. It's not going to help you win any races. You might look cooler though...lol.

That's true. It makes looking at your tank more fun but "bells and whistles" aren't needed.

I found the full spectrum to be too purple for me. I like the regular whites and blues personally.

But yep, they will grow corals.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.
