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.
