My planted aquarium (46g) had 3 fluorescent bulbs (2 watt/g) and happy 
cardinal tetras. After I replaced two of the bulbs by two 55w PCs (3 watt/g), 
the cardinals scared away and now keep hiding under a large sword all the 
time, except when feeding. So you are right in worriyng about fish being 
scared by too bright ligths.
