LED DIY Replacement for older Eclipse hood

Hi everyone. I joined because I'm having a little problem. But before I go there I thought I would share a little something I put together.

My Marineland eclipse ballast finally gave out after 10+ years. I grew many plants and went through ups and downs. Anyway I took this as an opportunity to upgrade to leds. After two weeks without lights and another week with only 500mA i finally was up and running. After some fast and furious growth I seem to have hit a deficiency or something. But now some pics.
These are 3 - 10w leds 6500 eBay specials.
I'm running at 800mA right now and don't know if I should turn them up or down.

Yes the tips are completely white. 😫
