Add about 4 OCW and it will fix your color problems of having just CW with RB.

what do i need if i have 18 cool whites, 18 royal blue and 18 regular blue?

 

do i still need OCW or i can skip that and add 495nm and 660nm LED? how many would i need?

18 Blue?!?! thats insane

What do you run them at?

 

I would say you need only about 5-6 of the OCW so in this case you can get rid of 12 of the Blue and add 6 495nm and 6 660nm.

i based my design off the AL SOL so i had equal amount of white RB and blue

 

i run half my blue at 1amp and the other half at around 700-800ma

 

i might ditch some of the blue and replace it with some RB and add 495nm and 660nm
