The fixture you have is just fine. You may want to look for bulbs that would enhace the color of your fish. These should be available at your lfs.

A lamp something along the lines of the added link would do very well.

I really don't know what kind of fixyre you are usein, but these are T-8's, I believe. If you use T-5's or compacts , this light is not for you. But you can get similar bulbs to fit you fixture's configuration.
