    Hey guys, I have managed to pick up 2 x 900 illumilux for really good deals but I see now that they are slightly different.

    one is the Illumilux 900-MBI (Royal Blue / Cool White)
    one is the Illumilux 900-MBL (Royal Blue / Blue)

    Is this a problem ?

    It all depends on what configuration you want to run them in but it shouldn't be a massive issue.

    That is not a problem. The illumilux comes in a few variants, the marino bianco which is the white/blue combination, marino blu which is the 2 types of blue leds and then the marino sole which is just white and then 2 others.

    So you have the Marino bianco and the marino blu.

    You will just find that the tank will run a bit more blue that's all. When the controller comes in from TSR you can then just reduce the amount of blue if it is not to your liking.

    Ok, so it's more aesthetic than anything else ... It won't affect coral growth negatively ?
