Is this a fish only tank or do you have live plants? If so what kind?

Since you don't have plants just look for a bulb labled as color enhancing in the 8 to 10,000 Kelvin range.

One thing to keep in mind is some shyer (not sure on spelling) or nocturnal fish will stay hidden if you have too birght of lights. I don't think any of your current fish would be drastically affected however, keep that in mind when buying new fish.
