I don't know but would love some info as well. My local store has these. We took one of of the box and held it over some of their tanks. Shimmer was awesome with no color disco ball effect. I've been trying to find out more information on them though. I looked at the Build my LED but to get the 470 NM and then get enough for the 660 red for photosynthesis I'd need to have 2 660 LEDs on each of the strips and am worried about disco ball.

I'm considering getting the 50/50 blue white or the 100% white for shimmer and then supplementing with a T5 fixture ATI blue + and a Purple + to make sure I have the right spectrum.
