I have AI Hydra HD. Which LED lighting spectrum provides growth and which is for fluorescence? It comes with UV, Violet, Royal Blue, Green, Red and White.

Can someone explain to me what each of these coloring spectrum does or which one is not needed but just for viewing? I hear the Green and Red is not needed and they tend to promote unwanted algae. The Blues can provide all the growth requirements? Can I setup for 100% Royal blue and Blue only to grow corals? which colors great for fluorescence (color pop)?

I have mainly LPS, zoas, Acan and birdsnest sps.

I have 40% uv, 70% violet, max deep/Royal blue, 40% blue/cyan. For pop. ( runs for 12hr )

Daytime I have same as above + 30% green, red, white. For growth. ( runs for 5hrs )

Works well for me.
