+1 on the link above, that helped me out. I had a hard time settling on a spectrum while trying to figure out what looked good to my eye but good for growth and color. Good to see some actual testing. I have AI 26s but they have the same diodes, just twice as many. It is definitely blue, but you can tweak it from there to dial it in to how you like it. Only a percent or two more of white makes a big change. It limits the red and green that can fuel algae growth.

Yesterday I got around to installing the Tunze ATO (works great so far) and I've slowly been ramping my lights up (i've got a ways to go, but taking things relatively slow...

Pink Digi from the Christmas meeting hasn't grown much but is coloring up a bit.

New years update:

Picked up several frags from Sean yesterday thanks @albertareef! Also you may be able to tell from the crummy phone pics that the Coraline is starting to come in (yellow then green then darker green now purple spots).   

I'm continuing to slowly ramp up my lights:

I'm going to dig through the house and see if I can find a snorkeling camera that I picked up a few years back.  It's bound to take better photos than this phone...

Looks like you’ve been busy gluing stuff down!  Hope they all do well for you - I will have a piece of the purple cap whenever you find room.

Updated with a few pics.   I dug out an older olympus snorkeling camera for most of these.

Top view of birdsnest.  Interesting how it looks green/blue from above, and brown/red from the side.

Top view of some new growth.  The Monti caps are growing slowly in spite of being partly shaded.   My hope is they will soon be out far enough to gather a bit more light.   I can't recall the name of the green piece which I got from @albertareef however all of those bright green nubs are new within the last week....

Not going to win any photo contests but this one cracks me up - my clowns are constant photo-bombers.

Zoa rock viewed from the top.  This is the one I had to dip in a hydrogen peroxide solution 2 weeks ago.  It seems to be recovering nicely (and no signs of bubble algae so far).

Side view of same rock, taken minutes apart.   Funny how once in awhile my phone (pixel2) takes better pics than the dive camera.

Glad to see they are starting to grow for you. Looks like that one piece is the sour apple birds nest from Holly.
