495nm is Turquoise that should be used small amounts on a tank as it will quickly over power other colors if not mixed with 660nm Deep Red and 455nm Royal Blue. When mixed with the Deep Red and Royal Blue, all 3 colors will display a "White" light but still bring out fluorescent pigments found in corals. The Turuiose is going to bring out oranges and reds.
This wavelength is almost a green color and is currently experimental. The idea behind this wavelength is to fill the missing gap needed to bring out certain colors like reds and oranges in a standard Neutral White + Royal Blue combo.
Please note you do not need additional optics for these LEDs as they come with the optic of your choice.
There are 2 review(s) for Turquoise - 495nm

I've to agree with the other reviewer, these have some really nice cyan color. Nowadays Luxeon,Avago, Nichia all make their high power cyan LEDs emit light around 505nm, which doesn't look cyan but a boring green in my opinion. These are noticably bluer!
Specs I found on the package:
Note that the flux at 700mA is less compared to the cyan rebels but so is the price, so I can't really complain.

Very nice LEDs - most blue of turquose/cyan out there!
