The only reason I did not choose them is the ugly factor

I don't think they are terribly ugly. I like the par38s

With the par 38's you can hide them in a fixture!

Haha I'll take that as a compliment.
As for the lights, I don't believe the EVO has the simulated sunrise/sunset effects, but with the timer you could probably make something work. I would set the blues to come on an hour or so before the whites to simulate the "sunrise" and have them run for an hour or two after the whites turn off for the "sunset" effect. It won't be nearly as realistic, but at least it's something.

Right. Deciding on lighting has been the biggest struggle by far.

Definitely. It'll be worth it in the end though. At least you're taking the time to research what would best suit your tank needs and not just buying the first cool thing you find. No matter how many neat features it has or how cheap it is. Research and patience are key in this hobby.
