This sounds like a natural opportunity to add to the "Ooooh" factor in
your tanks by going for metal halide lighting.  Maybe you could even mount
them on one of those track systems they sell for hydroponics.  That would
even out the light and get the effect of moving sunlight.

Sorry, no bulb recommendations.
