I'm looking for a light blue. Something that is not turquoise or at least doesn't have a green shade to it, but blue. Something like baby blue or sky blue, or just like blue.

Any recommendations?

Waterman Serenty Blue (used to be called Florida Blue). I have a similar aversion to green undertones in blue inks, and Serenity Blue is green-free!

I agree with the Sailor recommendations. Big fan of Sailor inks and Sky Blue is just what you describe.

 

Also Kon Peki is my light blue. Good shading, real blue, lighter but still usable. Pilot really got this one right, though it is pricey.

 

I haven't tried any non-Japanese light blues, so I'm sure there are other manufacturers that have what you need in their selections.

I haven't tried Kobe #42, but I suspect that it would be a good choice. Another that I *do* have is Sailor Sherbet Blue, which is a pretty light blue, kind of like a cornflower crayon, if you remember those. Diamine China Blue might be a contender, as well.

To my eye Iroshizuku's Ajisai (Hydrangea) is a fairly washed out blue (esp. when compared to their Asa-Gao). You can provoke a bit of shading in a broader nib, so it rides the fence between sky blue and primary color blue...

Do you think that Noodler's Lightning Blue can serve as a fountain pen ink?

Iroshi's fuyu-syogun. More of a bluish light grey. Sky in Northern Canada shortly before the snow storm and all that.... I love it!

Tsuyu-kusa, or Diamine China Blue.

Parker Washable Blue is the way to go!. Light, not water resistant but writes very well in every pen/nib; on every kind off paper.

It can be, it is a fountain pen ink. However, it might not suit you for just writing. Get a sample first, before investing in a full bottle.

I've used Lightening Blue and like it, but it is better as a highlighting ink. It is a good mix for making a wet ink a little drier.

Here are some suggestions. Tell me what colors in these samples you like and I'll see if I can come up with a good idea.

Fountain pens are my preferred COLOR DELIVERY SYSTEM (in part because crayons melt in Las Vegas).
