I have the steves led upgrade for my 32g biocube but I didnt get the iridescent booster upgrade. Has anyone added any film to get the same effect? There are iridescent films sold that self stick but and in several colors.

This upgrade swaps out 4 of the Royal Blue LEDs with 4 Hyper Violet LEDs.

You sort of can't filter what you don't have.
Only way to shift the color would be at a massive loss of output.
See the "physics".
Note the royal blue would need a large part of it's output filtered to shift it's peak emission to close to 420..

A filter that would help..
