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

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!
