Here are some pics taken this morning. The brightness difference between the fixtures seems a lot less during the day. For some reason it is more shocking at night when there are no other light sources on.
Please don't judge the scape too much. Since shutting off the CO2 my bacopas are struggling, my sword has lost half it's size and the crypts mostly melted. I've recently placed some wisteria stems wherever there was an open space. I'll figure out who goes and who stays and where after they prove they are going to survive.
Pic1 - Ray 2
Pic2 - Current Freshwater+ in Full Spectrum Mode
Pic3 - Current Freshwater+ in Mode with a bit of red
Pic2 seems to my eye to be the most color accurate though I realize these images look only subtly different. Note the difference in color of the substrate in each pic as well as the color of the single stem of Ludwigia Red Palustris right in the center. Also, the rock directly under the cardinal tetra (just right of center) in image 1 is a piece of local pinkish granite (with some algae). In images 2 and 3 you can see the hint of pink between the crypt leaf shadows, but it really looks mostly green in image 1.
Interestingly, the camera does not capture the washed out look for the Ray2 very well. When I look at the tank, instead of seeing the textured beige wall thru the tank I mostly see a green glare. This glare is present, though less, if I run the Current Freshwater+ in white LED only mode.
Hope these are of some use to somebody.
