It is good that you are researching the fish Like the raphael. They do not grow very fast and as mentioned you might be able to keep one ffor a while before it needs a larger tank. A raphael would be much happier I think in a 40 or 50 gal. They do make bulbs like you described though I have not tried them. Something I used to do was use the lights that beople clip on their books at night to read. This allowed me to check on the fish at night when some of them were more active. As for the job, many people don't work at jobs that they enjoy all that much but they do what they must to pay the bills ,buy groceries, pay the rent etc. You will appreciate that check at the end of the week that will allow you to pursue your hobby. Just think of all the fish there are waiting for someone such as you to provide them with a good home.
