Cool Blueish Light for 29g freshwater

I have noticed this really nice fish tank in this building one day, what made their tank look so neat was the light, it was a blue ish light, and it just made the tank look amazing....

Is there such a light for a 29g tank?

Actinic bulbs can be used in freshwater, I'm currently using them on a few Malawi tanks. Depending on your fixture there may be a possibility with a 50/50 flourescent bulb as well.

I'm using a 50/50 flourescent 17w bulb in my fixture and it gives that nice blue hue. I'm so used to it on my sw tanks that its now on some of my fw ones.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

My 46 gallon has a duel T-5 HO fixture. I have a daylight and an actinic bulb which are individually controlled. We turn off the daylight lamp and keep the actinic light on in the evening before turning it off for bed. You can check out some pics in my profile, but my camera exaggerates the blue / violet color of the actinic and makes it look brighter than it actually is.
