My only negative on my Beamswork is that I cannot set it up to ramp on and off, but that is rather nitpicky.

Ok, I officially like the color of the DHL better, but do they make a 24" model? I can't seem to find one.

How different is this one?

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...1?ie=UTF8&th=1

It's the 24" version of the one that I bought.

As @jeffkrol said it's very close par and color wise as the dhl. I actually tried to get that one over the da fspec but they were out of stock for the 48" and besides readings were already out for that one. I wanted to do par data for lights that did not have data for yet.

I like it a lot, and it photographs yellower than it looks in person, like your DHL. Anyhoot, it is available in 24".;-)

I see what happened, Jeff and I posted at close to the same time and I missed it.

You dont really need the blue LED on planted tank unless you want to view at night.
Can blue LED turned off without the use of timer add ons?

Not by itself no. All on, blue only on or all off. This as an add on will let you. Timer Module for Beamswork or EVO Quad LED Aquarium Light Fixture https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00EDMOHH8..._W5ObzbA7REBQ9

I wounder if anyone has taken the time to figure out if you can just short out a couple pins int he controller port to turn off blues can't be anything complex going on in there.

because other than that the timer is really not worth it because a wall timer or a TC420 controller does the same thing for less money.

With my own personal experience (incompetence) with these lights and the timer unit, the light is not very visually appealing without the blue lights. Especially if there are any tannins in your water. they got pretty yellow-green with out the balance of the blue.

Seems you know Beamswork product well.
Do you know if they have models that comes with only white LED?

I could not find on searches.
