Lighting for Clowns...

Now, I have 13 clowns and they get along great with some neons whose numbers decrease oftenly....they cost 20 cents each anyway...

I hardly turn on my light anymore as they never come out of their huge cave about 1/6 of the tank and like playing with the output of the two eheims...1440 gallons per hour...

I was wondering, instead of using normal aquarium lightning tubes, could I use marine blue actinic light to stimulate a night environment so they would come out 24 hours ? These tubes cost a lot...30 dollars each(in singapore...about...15 us ?) Isit Okay to ue marine blue actinic tubes as lighting for clowns ?

Since my hood can acomodate two tubes, maybe 1 normal and one
