Often mistaken for UV LED, this 430nm LED is in the perfect range for coral growth and fluorescence
430nm Hyper Violet (600-720mW radiant power @ 500mA)
Combine this with the CREE XT-E Royal Blue, which runs at 455nm, to get the perfect range of Violet / Royal Blue for your corals to make them really "pop"
60 degree version of the 405nm is only available in a 6 pack
These LEDs will look dim to you because of their 395nm - 430nm wavelength which is almost outside the range your eyes can see but they will provide incredible PAR for corals.

Very impressed with the extra pop these LEDs give the corals.

ich betreibe 4 von diesen violetten LEDs in einer separaten Lichtleiste mit einer Spannung von 3,4 Volt. Aquarium Maße LxBxH 68x50x50cm. Die Hauptbeleuchtung besteht zu 30 % aus weißen LEDs mit 14000K und 60 % blauen LEDs mit ca. 50K. Der Farbgewinn ist enorm!! Möchte nicht mehr auf diese UV-LEDs verzichten.

I was really skeptical about these LEDs but little over a month and they've dramatically changed the color of my Acans and SPS. Acans went from an orange to a deep red, while SPS went from deeper (duller) to a more pastel color. Overall colors are superior and similar to what I was used to with a MH/T5. Watch out for bleaching in SPS if you run at full blast. Really seems like what was missing in my LED set up (4:1:1:1, RB:NW:CW:TV)was the spectrum provided by this LED. Had a MH/T5 setup 2 years ago and always felt something was off with just the RB:NW LEDs. RB:NW are weak with blues, reds, and yellows. Highly recommended! Color/growth in my SPS tank is PHENOMENAL now!

Great color, so far I'm happy with the product. I use it in combination with royal blues and whites. You will not see it, but I do believe it adds to the coral color. By itself the coral colors are unreal

Very nice bright violet LEDs.
We use 350 mA to power them

Just got a bunch of those and was testing several light combinations before I do the final build. I was thinking about using these violet leds to supplement cool whites instead of the blues, and although I really like the color combo, they are just too dim to the eye to have any serious effect. You need something like 3:1 (current) of violet:white to see any real difference. However, where these guys really shine is just being on by themselves at dusk/dawn. While the royal blues just look blue - these produce a very silky whtish/bluish/purplish color which makes the corals pop. There isn't a lot of light, but that is made up for in the dimensions it brings out of the corals. So I highly recommend these on their own driver, running by themselves.
