When setting up my new tank shortly, i was thinking of getting some kind of low-light,like blue or a similar colour.

Yes, they do: tank tube lights exist in all sorts of colors, all for a specific purpose (like stimulating plant growth [different 'parts' of the spectrum have different effects on plants], special salt water lights etc.)
I use a reddish tinted tube light, and have a greenish one spare, but I have no clue what their purpose is (they came with my tank
)
You can get a tinted light, but if you want to dimm it anyway (which is recommended for a piranha tank, to make them less skittish), why spend extra money? Just get a decent white one, and use the extra money for other, more useful tank gadgets

Thanks for the info.
I was gonna wrap an ordinary strip light in electrical tape, im told that makes for a good lighting effect - is this correct??
