I don't own leds yet but I'm not much of a fan of the focused optics. Gives you great depth but I hate when you can see the multiple "columns" of light at the top of the tank from individual lights.

I understand that. I was simply stating that if I'm growing sps at 30" away without optics, I'm not too worried about it. Logan from Reefbreeders was shipping me some optics, and he mentioned shipping out 2 royal blues to replace the reds. Quite accommodating!

The reefbreeder post pics when you hook up the 2 royal blue. I will probably email Logan the about the same issue.

Summary, red is ugly and unknown if assists coral color and growth. Experiment continues, but would prefer to look at a tank with just blue and whites.

I don't really see the green. I'm not bothered by it. What's the point though? If the red Diodes wash out the red corals, won't the greens do the same to anything green?
There are violet diodes. They may be contributing to the red tinge, but it's hard to say without swapping out the reds to see.

When i set up the leds 2 weeks ago i really noticed the red but i don't so much anymore. The pink hue seems to really have faded for whatever reason. There were a few days where i thought about seeing if i could just remove the 4 reds but now im just going to leave them. My lps and softies are all doing great but my sps is taking off. My acro frag is gettin more and more colorfull and is growing like crazy!

I think that's from the more powerful lighting, rather than some red in the tank.
