Your opinion wanted please (lights)

Which light do you like better? I'm kinda torn.

The first pictures there's no switching blue to white or vise versa just on.



Attachment 63832


Second set you can do white or blue or both and the moonlight LED's stay on all the time. I feel the white washes out the blue.


This picture is blue/white
Attachment 63834

this is just white

Well IMO you want the white on (with or without the blue) because of you plants.

The first shot is aquaticLife T5 HO

Second shot of pics is Solarmax T5 HO.

The upside to the Solarmax is you can pick white, blue or both but the LED's never turn off.

Haha which one? The Solarmax or AL? And why would they have a light where the LED's are always in? Don't they need a period of total darkness?

Personally I'm not a fan of blue lighting (except moon lights) on tanks. I like the white/pink look for during the day but that's just me. Others like blue.
