It would take many rows of "light ropes" to get even low light in an aquarium. If you don't want to use fluorescent light, why not try making your own LED light? Look at some of the threads on making them and see if you can do that.

Thanx Guys, I just wanted to make sure that it is not about what kind of light I have to put, but it is how strong the light is, am I right? what is the difference between using blue, white, warm or mixing between light colors?
