Why are there no reasonably priced LED lights using a high CRI LED?
I understand that CRI is not an important factor in growing aquarium plants, but a lot of our hobby is viewing our tanks and their inhabitants. I have a pair of photo LED lights on my 75g and the light coming from them seems much more pleasing than the aquarium LEDs I have on my other tanks. The Nicrew on my 20L isn't bad, but the Beamworks on my 10g has lousy color and the Nicrew G2 while powerful, doesn't impress me with its light's color, although that tank is empty and dry. I would think someone would build an aquarium light with a high CRI for enhanced viewing. Is there some technical or other reason why none of the manufacturers have done this?
