The purple should not change the appearance of the tank. Green and normal blues are recommended to make corals pop a little. Red should always be on a separate channel.

Ya of course, i didnt really mean to connect the two.

I still can't believe my At my LFS i would have to drop $1500 min on LEDs with this power. I guess the real value test will be how long these last...

1st. So my local led expert said that it would be better to run the 1w bulbs to equal what the 3ws would be because it would reach the bottom of the tank better. Any opinions?

2nd. On a 36" 65g tank what fixtures does anyone suggest because I think 2 fixtures would just be to much light and really over do it so I'm thinking of building my own but wondering what lights to get and how many.

That's nonsense. How is a 1 watt lamp stronger than a 2 watt lamp? I don't know what fixture is best for you, but keep in mind what you want to spend and what livestock you want to keep.
