I know ecoxotic sells par 38 bulbs, but I don't know if they are good or not. I have heard about par 38 bulbs used for smaller tanks smaller than 20 gallons.

It's just the bulb. You need to buy a fixture. I'm not sure which one though.

If you're just starting with fish-only, you can use any light you want..... fish don't have any special lighting requirements. Once you decide you want corals, that's when you need to worry about specialized lighting.

I disagree. I've used Dr Tim's One & Only twice and had my tank cycle in about a week both times. You get a quick spike, but I never had issues with nitrates afterwards. I'm not sure about other products though. It needs an ammonia source, so you either add fish or add the extra product that they sell with it.

Yes. Neither the fish or the beneficial bacteria on the live rock require any special lighting,
