Tank Lighting

I have ECLIPSE Natural Dalight 36" lights in my hood or whatever. They are pretty bright of course. I heard that larger cichlids and oscars and such don't like a bright light. Any suggestions on bulbs?

65RR - SW - 30g Sump w/fuge - 40lbs MI LR 30lbs Base - 4-5"Sand Bed - 2 false black perculas, 1 six line wrasse, 1 peppermint shrimp, 6 zebra hermits, 6 blue leg hermits, 6 nassarius snails, 6 astrea snails

If you are using the stock light strips, it will be fine. You'll have less than 1 wpg, which is not really enough to grow plants, let alone stress out a fish.
