Neon lights on SW - good/bad??

My bf found some old neons in the garage. We were considering putting some on the saltwater tank just for appearance, it is lit properly already this was going to be used just as an accent. We have 1 blue right now, I thought it may just add a little more blue light to the tank since the white lights overpower the actinic the way it is right now. I was thinking of getting a red one to use to see nocturnal critters sorta like how you can use a red flashlight this would just make it easier.
Has anyone tried using neons?? Does anyone know of a reason they would be bad or harmful to use? Like I said this wouldnt be the main lighting for it but is it harmful even as an accent?? Any thoughts are appreciated!!!!
