3W LED array

anyone see any glaring problems w/ this 2 channel setup?
I was helping someone out but am a bit worried about color blending since I'm not real familiar w/ 3w LED's.
This is 2 channel 3w LEDs w/ what I suspect is 90 degree optics minimum..

Any thoughts?

interesting mix that may work well. I cant tell what the spacing will be but I would try to keep the spacing on the reds even. that should minimize the disco issues that could occur. I think your channel choices and general amounts look about right. love to see it lit up over a tank.

Thanks the red issue is due to the fact that it is 3 identical "modules"..also the manuf. choice of interleaving and diagonal placement.. Not how I would do it but it is what it is..

Thanks for the input...

Will the lens be removable? You may get some spotlighting. If you do, you may want to remove them on the reds, and possibly on the blues, and cyans.
