Refuge light

I have a 96 watt PC that is lighting my Refuge and I noticed today where some salt nuggets got under the plastic gard and I guess melted it enough to make it not flat anymore and I cant slide it out. I might just replace it. Anybody got any that they`ve seen online. 12-18 inches. LFS said he had some for 130.00. I told him I did not want a 1000 watt lamp. 8O . What do ya`ll use to light up the fuge. Just some facts,lights stay on 24/7 because of a tankful of Grape Calerpa. Someone let me know of a good deal and I`ll name my next kid after you.

I know this will spark alot of controversy but some people have had modest success using compact florecent plant lights for their refuges.

I'm using compact fluorescent bulbs -- 18 watt bulbs - color spectrum 6500K (daylight/stark white).

You can get the lights from Casa Depot; they're cheap (a rarity in this trade); and seem to be working fine on my set-up.
