Lighting solution?

Whats the best lighting for 2 clowns and a skunk cleaner shrimp?

Reason I ask is because I was told that the cleaner shrimp likes "low" light..... Although I'm not sure if this is true. Can anyone confirm that?

Anyway, what would be the best lighting setup to keep them ALL happy?

For fish and shrimp you can have whatever lighting you want. They can take any lighting.

Hmm, ok thanks. But... right now we're using some generic no-name light that came with the hood set of our tank and my husband wants to get something of better quality.

But the shrimp wont come out and "socialize" unless I turn the light off. So I'm lost.

That`s what shrimp do no matter what light you have. Mine hide during the day and come out at night. You dont need any special lighting for fish or shrimp.
