I have a stip light on my 55g that I got from my LFS.... It serves it purspose, but I was looking for what you guys use to really make colors pop with your fish....

I want something crisper, so the colors can be truly experienced....

I have a dual 48" shop light that I bought from homedepot and in it I have a 10K bulb (zoo med ocean sun) and a 420 actinic bulb (zoo med coral sun) and my fish colors are really nice. The blue on my peacocks are very iridescent and the yellows are very nice too.

Look at the Hagen color enhancing bulbs. They worked well in my strip light on my 55.
