    I have one in my light fixture. It is basically a 25w blue bulb. When the room is pitch black you can see very well in the tank. I leave it on 24-7 as a filament bulb last longer this way. Makes a nice effect at night.

    I was in a Additronics store today looking for things to build and I came across the probably least expensive way to make some Moonlites...well actually you dont have to build anything but just install it over your tank and plug it in.

    What I found was called Create a lite it gave me 12ft of cable enclosed in plastic within the plastic it had aprox 100 leds with a variety of colors I picked up the blue of coarse.
    and all for 12.99

    I will be installing it tonight and will take pics to post here is what it looks like.
