How much blues do you all put in your tank. I am currently finding myself quite annoyed with how much white my aquarium has in it. It seems my corals only look good under actinic and a day of lighting. I think I need some more blue during the day... My corals grow quite well and look beautiful but they just look so dried out under the growth spectrum,

I have found the best balance for my corals and anemones while still maxing out on blue tones is:
40% super blue (22,000K0
40% actinic
20% white (10,000 or 12000K)

That mix has works with both LEDs ans T5s (or at least as close as I could get to that mix with T5s)
