Need to add shimmer to the tank.

I am desperate for some shimmer. I have an 8 bulb t5 that puts out 0 shimmer. What can I add for shimmer and maybe a little bit more light??? I love shimmer and if you know of something that will put a lot out I would love to get that. I'm guessing an LED strip, but which one?!?!

Marineland has those waterproof accent strips that may work but combatting 8 t5s might require a lot of light lol

I don't need a really powerful light like $120, just something for some shimmer. I'll check em out tho. Mrc could you post a link? Im not familiar with those. Also Octavio please post a link. Sorry. Just wanna make sure in looking at the right ones.

Yes I have a ton. T5s don't shimmer though.
