No ultra violet, glow in the dark type thing???

Ok i think you are either taliking about moonlighting or color inhancing flourecent tubes

Daz 11-26-2006 06:32 PM

Yes that correct, not moonlighters thou. The ones that make even my teeth look white.

You could use black lights if you wanted or buy some super actinic bulbs for marine tanks.

yea...sounds like ur talking about blacklights...those are the only ones i know that would turn your mouth white...but ive never heard of them being used in a tank...could you imagine what coral would look like under that light? amazing!

Well this is the plan, but I need to know how it could effect bacteria. 2hours after lights out is what I'm looking at.

i have red L.E.D lights if thats what you mean.
they are for my catfish because the supposidly can't see them.
i don't know if they can't see them but i know that they can't see it but they certainly seem more relaxed and happy when it is on.
hope this helps!
