    It's a neat idea. However I still like the LED setup better. The LED's give off that oh so neat shimmer effect in the water. From the pictures, I couldn't tell if the cold cathode's could do that.

    Matt I've been thinking, those cold cathode lights also come in RED. They might make a good night light to use if you need to look in your tank in the dark. [smiley=idea.gif]
