Walmart.com: Aquatop LEDC-21 Clip-On 21 LED Aquarium Light, 1ct: Fish

Walmart.com: Aquatop 36RGB Clip-On 36 LED Aquarium Light With GB, 1ct: Fish
Kai, I'm afraid that neither of those would be sufficient for coral IMO. I don't know a ton about LED but I have a light similar to those over a 10 gallon half moon tank and it really isn't all that powerful... highly doubt any corals would survive under it. It surprisingly grows low light plants pretty well though. LOL

Hey Mama...Thanks for the good word!

I wasn't sure. The price was just too tempting to not ask . I might buy it for my shrimp tank. I will keep looking for inexpensive T5 and LEDs for the 10g. I am working on a strict budget for getting this set up and the lighting is the most cost prohibitive. I have been reading about LEDs but I just don't get the Par PUR conversion versus the power ratings for LEDs compared to T5s and PCs :/
