Does anyone have an updated layout? With less 3500-7500k and the addition of 420nm, it seems to be a lot closer to the spectrum most of us are looking for.

I just ordered 4 from “mars hydro distributor” on eBay. Their picture depicts two violets and similar layout to he viparspectra. A “mars hydro” distributor of mars aqua on amazon said they do have 420. If mine don’t, they’re going back. I’ll post what I get.

I ordered 3 mars aqua. Suppose to get them tomorrow. Mine showed they had (2) violets and decreased the amount of 460s, increased the amount of 450s. I'll see when I get them. Also want to check what type of leds.

I have been on the fence looking at mars or phlizon . I’m not really happy with the blue channel or the white for that matter. I like a lot of 450s on the blue side they are useing a lot of 470s and the whites are a bit yellow . They need to be more like 12000k not 3000 and 6500 .
I would hate to buy a light just to molest it . Would be nice if they would already be doing the changes .
I would split the blues to 430-450-470 and have some 420s even a couple of 490s on the white channel.
