you'd be lucky if 1% of planted tank people even heard of them..

Orig Finnex Fuge-ray R had 7000k whites and 660nm reds..
Color combo is really good..

Buildmy led had a discus pattern that was 6500k/660nm red diodes.

There is precedent from the past, enough to sort of answer most of your questions..
From their spectrum plot their whites are nothing too special but do seem to have some blue/green supplementation..
