Is the PAR38 only a bulb? This is what I found: http://www.amazon.co.uk/LED-PAR38-SU.../dp/B001FZ4PZA

What else do I need with it? Also, I've seen people convert hob filters into refugiums, would I need one on the tank or could I just use it for mechanical filtration? Thank you all so much for the advice, it's really helping!

It says that the par38 is only 3800-5000K, is that ok for growing corals? I thought it had to be around 10000k?

Hi! I ordered the LED 480 Aquarium Light Nano Pico Marine Coral light off eBay for $30! It works great on my nano tank and is growing zoas and a Kenya tree beautifully. Hope that helped.

+1 A 10g would be a great starter tank IMO if that's what you want to do. I have a 3 gallon, and it's actually not that difficult (even for a first time reefkeeper like me .)

I would recommend a par38 as well, the reef koi one is popular among a bunch of users on AA.

I'm not sure if it's available in the UK though...
