so the lighting for your tank is your homes recessed lights right?
that sounds familir, i have 3 14w spiral buls in a kitchen light, above/to one side of my 75, with the glass top and no tube light on it looks real natural,
i think you are having the same issuei am as withmy tube light its really bright, when i get the chance *** heard any 40w and under 4ft shop light will work, i may try some from H-Depot soon to see if i get a clearer, or dimmer light,
the LPS also sells like 5 different 4' tubes but at 15-25 bux each its a gamble whether you like it or not,
i have a lil 24" on a 30gal, with a stock bulb i think 20w, looks bright but ok,then i have a 20w bulb from mom and pop type LFS which is really deepblue, i guess for marine, i keep tryingto find somthing in the middle.
