Blue light

Ok ok, so Psilocybe cubensis responds to light. Accordingly the ideal outpuy is 440ish nanometers of blue light. Wal-Mart has cheapo aquarium blue lights, with weak outputs high in blue. Nano-meter is one billionth of a meter, so the ideal would be very weak output such as the cheapo's available at Wal-Mart, yes?

Summary: Will the aquarium lights at wal-mart work?

Yeah, but just about any light except some special red photo developing room light would work well. There has been no proof that using more blue or exclusively blue light will increase yields. In fact a normal white fluorescent bulb probably had just as much if not more blue in it than the aquarium bulb, but it doesn't appear blue because it's balanced out with the rest of the spectrum.
