Adjusting LED's question

I had posted this wthin another thread , but I got no response. Maybe because this was asked before by someone else.
I built a large light fixture with 5 heat sinks and 182 LED's 50/50 white and blues and is hooked up to a Apex Aquacontroller. The lights came from Aquastyleonline. I would like to know at what % are you running your lights to get the best color since a picture cannot substitute for seeing it in person. An example would be running the whites at 90% and the blues at 80%. I would just like some opinions, so I can try it to see if it looks good with my light fixture. This is what it looks like.

IMO its trial and error until you find what you like. It's been quite a while, but IIRC, my ELNs are running at about .73A now on both colors with the APEX @ 100%. My LEDs are CW and RB Cree XR-Es. I originally built my LEDs for the 120 I had previously. 96 the way I have them arranged isn't enough for my 210 so I added 2x Fiji Pink 80W T5s. The extra red in the spectrum really made things pop.

Hope that helps.
