12 LED PAR38 Bulb (Mixed Color with UV) - Rapid LED
Also, looking at these as a fixture for them:
LEDTRiC Gooseneck PAR38/PAR30 Fixture - LEDTRiC
Though I am not completely sold on the fixture. Aesthetics is important to me - it is a rimless tank and is in our living room, so it has to look decent. Cost is not a huge factor, though I don't want to break the bank on lighting a 12 gallon tank
Any other suggestions?
I can tell you from experience as far aesthetics go your not going to like them, unless you get fancy like an idea I had with ikea lamp fixtures to hide the light, not really my own idea but found it online.
The light itself I have nothing bad to say and some members here use them, hopefully they will chime in, I actually gave one to a member and she is very very happy with it. Justin if you take a look at my 8 gallon album you'll see my tank with regular lights and then the Par38 with red,green,blue,purple and whites.
