    Thought I would swap out a couple of the LEDS in my lights.
    I got some new Cool Whites to replace the ones I had and also used them to replace a couple of Neutral Whites.
    I also replaced my Violet UV and my Hyper Purples. (a couple of them were dying)
    Tried a couple of Turquoise, which really look good.
    I really like the new slight colour variation with the changes and the tank looks much crisper now.
    I'll see how the lights look as they wind down for the night and adjust them accordingly.
    Here's the new layout.

    my violets only lasted a few months before the lens discoloured and was only running them at 450mA. I like the OCW's.
    Must look into Turquoise, I see you added quite a few, what do you think they added to the look?

    Yeah my violets discoloured too, these ones look like a different LED.
    I only put 2 turquoise in and placed them next to the OCW because apparently they should be next to a red so they don't look overpowering.
    And yeah I love the OCWs they add a nice tone to the overall lighting.
