Lights for best colors

Does anyone know what kind of light I should have in the tank to bring out the colors of the fish the best while having a light that will be natural for the fish and won't harm them (overheat, etc)? I was debating between UV, fluorescent, or incandescent.

Fluorescent is what's usually used on aquarium tanks. When you go into heavily planted tanks, CO2 and other specialized stuff the the strength of the lights are a concern but still fluorescent.

So I really don't need the UV. I was told it was more natural for the fish and brings out their colors more, but fluorescent is the way to go? Will it bring out their colors more than an incandescent bulb?
