Hi all. I was going to get a couple of par38 bulbs and saw these par16 but not as powerful as the ones I would like, if I ran lots and lots of these would they be ok for soft corals ?

Oops only just seen these are only 1watt lol. I need something way more powerful. Does anyone have any recommended led par bulbs to use ?

Yeah I have just seen these bulbs but they are way too expensive, they cost around £120 a bulb. I was thinking of getting some lower power bulbs like these and running loads of them.
