just keep in mind that any color you buy isn't the actual color you're thinking of, they're cathodes, which glow a lot brighter than a typical light bulb and causes a white glow to it.. Meaning that red will look light red/ pink.. blue will be light blue/white.. Just keep that in mind.

LED's are better than Cathodes IMO, red actually does look red but in my opinion blue is a better colour to use in a case
