Funny how fish-heads recognize that light. When I go on my nightly 
walks, there is one house that has the familiar blue glow coming from 
behind the curtains. I tell my friend that there's a saltwater tank in 
there, but he doesn't believe I could know that just because of some 
blue light. Actinic bulb color is very distinctive once you've become 
familiar with it.
