    I'm wanting to put a "moonlight" on my 55g convict/jellybean convict tank in my bedroom.

    What type of bulb do I need, where can I find it, and can I still have my "daylight" light as well? I'm confused on how this all works. I can change to a glass top if I need to.

    well there are alot of cheap LEDs that come in a strip that are moon light, ive heard that some people glue the strips into, or onto the oustide of the hood they already have, then just turn it on when needed..."moonlights" are just blueish, and or whiteish lights.(to mimic moon "colors") i know ive seen them on ebay,amozon, i think fosters and smiths new aquatics.. and "that pet place"..(That fish place, that pet place.)

    You could use a low-wattage actinic bulb to get a similar effect, but you'd probably be happier with the look of LEDs. Foster and Smith even has some that are submersible, so you could keep the same hood. I've never used the submersible ones, so I can't comment on whether or not they are good/reliable products.

    I got mine (LEDS) in multiple strips for my 125 off of ebay and they have worked great
