Marital strife over the green tint of glass?

I like the ZOO Med Reef Sun bulbs.  A nice bright white/blue light in the tanks

I've noticed the older large tanks with real think glass have a very green tint, it's the iron they put in to strengthen the glass.  Newer tempered glass doesn't have quite the tint.  The new low-iron glass(starphire) is very nice, almost as clear as acrylic.  Marineland is making deep dimension tanks(36" width with optional Starphire fronts and sides.

I would post this on reefcentral.com - those guiys have been fighting the green tint in glass forever.

An actinic bulb casts a bluer light; a 10000k is bright white - maybe one of those can mitigate the green?  I dunno. 

Of course, a good set of lights could run another $300 - $500, so you better find out before yo buy.

Good luck.

I'm guilty of yet ANOTHER rookie mistake. After much struggle with my bride, I bought a used 230 gallon. It was painted on the bottom and 3 sides when i bought it. I removed the paint (except from the bottom) and learned the glass has a very green tint. The water can be clean enough to drink, yet the tank always has a poor appearance because of this tint. I set this tank up literally in the center of my house (don't worry, it's sitting on a concrete slab) (I live in a strange house) so of course my otherwise patient wife is p****d off. Is there some type of aquarium or other lighting that I can try to reduce the green tint that is present in the glass?
