Default What color Bait Well light to use?

I am going to add an led bait well light and would like to know what color works best?
I am leaning towards green. Would plain white light work better? It's a 60 gallon live well and I would like it brightly lit but don't want it to have adverse affects on the bait.
Looking for advice and suggestions.

IMO color is not a big factor as far as the bait is concerned. Brightness is. You only need a very small amount of light for the bait to be able to keep from banging themselves around.

I would suggest red light......would be the best choice for night fishing and wouldn't impact your night vision while taking out your bait.
