in your opinion does the rb offer a broad enough spectrum of blue or should I add some different wavelengths?

i couldn't find much info on density required. I've guesstimated using forum posts of similar size tanks. I imagine if I work out my optic spreads i could get a rough idea.
any secret formulas?

thanks again and I appreciate your time.
Just using the royal blues will be fine for the blue wavelengths. you can get reg blues and violets but it starts getting expensive fast.

At the top of this page:
there is a few links on calculators for both planted and reef tanks.
