LIGHTING Comparisons....

I was wondering if anyone knew where I could find some pics of fluorescent lighting comparisons. I bought a few coralife bulbs for my 55gallon, but both of them were too blue...I want more of like a real sunlight effect that's bright. The light currently in my tank is sort of like sunlight but doesn't bring out the true color of certain fish...anyone got any recommendations or where i could go to see the results of different bulbs???????

Thanks
TJ

I have always been a fan of the 10K or the 50/50 bulb, but they would be pretty blue. Real sunlight is yellow and yellow tends to dull the colors of our fish, not bring them out.
