the halogen torchier

I experimented using a halogen light on one of my tanks for a while.  I 
found that:

	1.  It was very hot and threw off a whole lot of heat
	2.  The color was VERY warm and everything looks quite yellow.
	3.  The light was very expensive to run (both in electricity and in 			    	  
     blown light bulbs.

I was not happy with the experience, but if it is working for someone 
then it must work...just not for me.  I didn;t use a torchier...i used 
an outdoors halogen fixture mounted on the wall behind the aquarium.
