Default Newbie LED tomato setup

This is my first attempt at hydroponics. So far so good, I must say. I just wanted to post my results thus far and see what happens. These tomatoes were germinated from seed, and transplanted into this setup 48 days ago. Flower buds just started appearing within the week. Is this fast, slow or normal growth? I do not know, but I havent killed the plant yet and that's all Ive been aiming for.

I am using a DWC with aeration. The light is comprised of 16 cree warm white XPG LEDs running at 700 mA, which is only half the max brightness of these LEDs. They say the red/blue LEDS are better, but I didn't want to stare at the purple light all the time. White light seems to be working just fine.
