Hi mate what lights are they?  Usually you'd have the same light across the whole display

As you can see they do go along the tank was just wondering if there is a preference front or back blue or white
Thanks

Ah I see what you mean,  not seen LEDs like that before in a tank. Should give a nice spread of light like a T5 fluorescent

Personally I'd put the blue at the front to make the corals glow more at the front of the tank 👍

I had something like this years ago. I found that the blue in the back made the tank look deeper somehow, I personally don't like a lot of blue so never had them in front. Try both and see what you prefer best?

I have the same lighting in my Juwel Rio. They seem to compliment each other; neither light overpowering the other.
