Alternatively, for space considerations, you can use 3mm LEDs. They exhibit the same Fvd as their 5mm versions.

And note please, water clear colors will always exhibit their respective color-related Fvd values. Many times, manufacturers will us the same ‘white’ LED doping material and wrap them in transparent colored plastic housings to achieve the different colors – for those, the Fvd will be the same across the different colors. I took my bag of cheap assorted plastic colored LEDs and measured the Fvd on all the different colors – the Fvd measurements on each of colored plastic ones was identical. YMMV

For the water-clear colored LEDs, each different color does exhibit a different Vfd for their respective colors.
