    Is the bulb supposed to be discolored on the ends even when its new?

      Out of the box, not usually, but it can show signs of use with as little as 1 hour of on time.

    I have a 56g-25"tall(deep), which makes it difficult to find the right type of bulb where the light will actually highlight the entire tank, right to the bottom. Do you think this zoomed lite will give me what I want?

      The bulb itself will not be what dictates the depth penetration in an aquarium. Instead it is the type of technology used. For the most depth penetration a metal halide would work best but it produces a high amount of heat and consumes fair amount of energy. High output T5 might be a better choice as it will reach to the bottom of your aquarium and does not consume as much energy as a metal halide and runs much cooler.
