Have to try them and see.
Looks promising though.
Thanks, and I'm so glad you were the first person to respond here. You must have a Google auto-search set up here .

As for our eyes, I prefer the higher K temp look. Right now I'm using a reef-recycled 1:1 cool white/royal blue over my 11g rimless and even at equal power to both colors, it's not too bad. Too blue, but not terrible.

I prefer to dim the blues down to about 24% of the whites, but I suspect running them all at equal currents in a 1:1:1 (cool white, warm white, royal blue) will look very, very nice. We'll find out in a couple months when I change my LED setup.
