purple tank effect?

    So I just got my 65 gallon tank a while ago and it's doing quite well. The only thing is, with the upgrade in size I got a twin tube flourescent hood, nad the flourescent lighting is making the tank fairly purple.

    Is this only due to the type of BULB in there? Cause if not, flourecent lighting is gross.

    Help me out BROTHAHS

    yea, its due to the light....there are tons of different bulbs out there to choose from, my personal favorite being 100% actinic along with neon gravel....i just finished making one of my tanks that....it is sweet.

    I had a problem with all my lights looking yellow so I took some foil, colored it blue with a sharpie marker, and taped it behind the bulb. Or if the light already had a reflector, I colored that blue. It works pretty well. It's just enough to cancel out the yellow w/o making the tank look really blue.

    My light looks kinda blue so yeah it is the light bulb. If this bothers you just get a new one that is made to make it a normal color like white.

    I got blue gel and put it around the light bulb. It looks great, ill try and post a pic if I can get my hands on a digital cam.
