That looks pretty true to life. I'm partial to the left tank. I don't like the pink look.

I think the camera accentuates the difference a little. My blue/white panels don't look that blue when both channels at 100% and my full spectrum don't look as rosy. May be because mine also have a pair of green LEDs.

Yes, my sand bed is more white than blue also, but with the colored fixture, the sand looks just like the right picture to me. Mine has 2 greens and 2 reds.

There's no doubt there is a color difference. But as I've stated before, I still think the full spectrum fixture saturates the colors better. One thing for sure, fixtures with more LEDs mix the color better than those with just a few higher power LEDs. The rainbow effect is obnoxious on some fixtures.

I think both units are turned up 100% on all channels. I personally don't like the purple hue and I found it hard to get rid of it. It went from pinkish to the purple seen, no blue unfortunately.

Then full spectrum is perfect for you! My wife also said the purple hurt her eyes bc of glasses while the blues really didn't. Just an FYI. Hope it works out
