Lighting question??

What is the best lighting to use that enhances the best colors for cichlids? I've read about Coral Life 50/50 and it says that this is one of the better lights to use... Any suggestions would be appreciated.

It is very dependent on your fish. Lights are for you and your pref. Fish need none.

I find that lights in the 10000k range bring out colors in my tanks, but I've heard that 50/50 bulbs will bring out blues, but wash out reds. Remember that using a 50/50 bulb is going to make your lighting much dimmer.
