I wanted incandescent lighting again as well as well as lighting that was suspended over the tank. After a few days searching, I came across and their low-priced halides.

They are a great value. The are light enough to hang from wall shelving.

There are 2 problems. First, the hanging brackets were not straight and make it difficult to level the lights and the do not come with any shades to cut down on light spill.

I was able to compensate for the brackets and I was able to create shades using about $30 in materials. (I can go into more detail if anyone cares, but the pics will pretty much tell the story)

Now things are looking better.
