What is his crime? Did he eat your shrimp? Bully other fish?

Do they make the little candleabra bulbs or whatever in a more pleasing color tone? Ive seen
GE reveal bulbs and 3500k spirals with the tiny base, but nothing in my area 6-10k kelvin.

I have had a couple of those tanks in the past, one was cursed though, so my friends and i blew it up on the 4th of july. Maybe ill get another and we can plastic walmart tank modders club 8) or not.. hah
