Has anyone seen this sight before? http://www.aquariumdesigngroup.com/aquascapes.htm

Does anyone have a setup like this? Where do I get the purple lights? I was in the process of starting a planted tank but after seeing these pics I may just quit and go back to the cichlids.

ive never sen it. and my set up is not like that. i think you can still have a planted tank with cichlids.

"It depends on the cichlids and depends on the plants, or so I've heard," says someone with non-planted tanks.

barristan,
I couldn't find the light you were referring to on that sight. But if you're looking for a standard t-12 fluorescent, I purchased a Coralife Magtinic-100% actinic 03 blue. I took it back and traded it for a Marine-glo. The Coralife wasnt' actinic blue, it was "purple'. Don't know if that's what you're looking for, but thought I'd let you know. LOL
