question on lights...

i have 2 blacklights that i got from the shed that would look way cool on the top of my 55 gal. i was just wondering if that light along with my pc lights (2 10K and 2 Actnic) would help anything or would the lights not even contribute to the well being of the tank? and does anyone know what the temp on those lights is? i know that it probably wont help anything but i would really make the polyps and the meat coral look WAY cool in some pics!! thanks for any help!

Black lights are UV. UV is what they use in tanning beds. It is also what the sun radiates.......You would cook them.
