I assumed so. Over at nano reef I was recommended the wave-point, a used par30, or a CFL. I would worry the corals would lose color under a CFL.

How about a cheap PAR38 in a simple desk lamp?

I know he's not looking for something he's going to throw away in a week once it falls apart. I have seen these fixtures. They are made of cardboard, and absorb any humidity in the area.

Could you link a par38 you would reccomend? All the ones in my price range come from China and I would prefer not to wait forever to get the light.

Budget was 30-40$, so this should be perfect. Thanks, didn't think to check Amazon. I've been looking on ebay.

Ended up buying a DIY par38 with a boostLED clamp for cheap. However, it is no longer going on the 3g. As a school tank, at not the greatest school, I risk having coral killed and the light broken/stolen. Decided to keep it fish only and still deciding on the fish. I'm thinking a clown goby. I was hobing for a goby/shrimp pair but I don't think there's any gobies small enough that partner with pistol shrimp.
