Ecotech probably still had a lot of blue LEDs left. A G6 was probably planned, but certainly not how they want to sell it now. There are no goods from China, so ..

it was this terrible light of the G5 Blue that made me switch to the G5 Pro. I'll do a heck and upgrade this Pro to G6! Especially not for that much money per kit!
Wasn't the G5 Blue supposed to mimic the AB+ spectrum? Or was that the Pro?

Did you take par measurements after the install of your primes? If so take them today and you will have your answer. If not then only you and your coral health can again answer.

Also no one knows until they are out if they are better than the current offering. Assumptions until test results to answer if the squeeze is worth it.

AB+ was traditionally the Pro running at 100% violets and blues, 24% green/red/whites.

Blue was to give a similar spectrum at 100% all channels. They tweaked the diode numbers and types (adding cyan). This brought back part of the ATI Blue+ spectrum lost in the original AB+. The 500 nm helps to stimulate red fluorescence and is in the absorption range of carotene. For deeper water where red is filtered by the water, red fluorescence does more than just look nice, it also is absorbed by chlorophyll a.

The overall look of the G5 Blue spectrum is closer to ATI Blue+ where you have this green "haze" vs the deep royal blue.
