Best lighting to bring out cichlid colors

Looking for something that will bring out the colors of my peacocks. A light that.is also nice and relaxing for nighttime as well.

No light even comes close to natural sunlight bringing out color in peacocks. I have the marineland double bright, lights the tank well, but flushes there color. I only use it when feeding, when I turn it on they all rush to the top. Also the moon light is pretty nice.

There's a 6500K LED on ebay for around $65 right now. I seen it. I got my first LED on ebay for $59.99 (Beamworks version 2) and my second on ebay for $71.95 (beamswork version 3 - one is obviously a knock-off can tell with spelling). Version 3 is amazing. And now it's only $67 on ebay. Both versions have moonlights, too. They are great. I love eBay.
