I embarked on a journey to attempt to build an LED light for my nano light on the prime 16. Although I opted out of using the red and green LED as someone with a prime 16 told me they leave it off anyways.
The lights used
4 x Royal blue
4 x Blue
4 x Cool white ( 1 cool white blew in testing today so will most likely swap it out with a warm white)
1 x UV
1 x Violet
All grouped on a heat sink with a fan for cooling and controlled using a 3 channel dimmer (5 lights on channel 1, 5 on channel 2 and 4 on channel 3)
Will post pics and update the journey
Any advice would also be appreciated

You can also have a look at either cyan or ice blue chips, which is in the nM space between blue and green, might be worth it as a lot of the other brands run them (like Orphek). Also have a look and play around on http://spectra.1023world.net/ to see more or less what spectrum will be like.
