I have an hexagonal tank (35l) and I used a Dicroic light (12V). The
problem was that it was to bright, resulting in high temperatures and a
problem for the plastic cover of the tank. The solution was connecting
the Dicroic (if you don't know what a dicroic is, i would say that it's
like a car headlamp bulb, with a glass as a parabolic antenna 5cm of
radius) to a regulator, very smooth light can be obtained. The
temperature problem was solved by installing a little fan, frequently
used in cooling computer transformers..
