lights for a 20 nano reef
 
Okay, I`m looking for lights for a 20 gallon nano reef that I`m starting, somewhere between 50-100 dollars. I`m planning to grow soft corals and mabye a clam. It`s a regular 20 gallon you but from wal mart.

We also have a 20g and use and par38 led bulb like this one....http://www.ecoxotic.com/ecoxotic-par...ed-lights.html

I rigged it from the ceiling using a basic shade and fixture (just the kind with a cord and where you screw the bulb in) from ikea.

Im happy with it.

Awesome, thats what I was orginally thinking but somebody told me that it wouldn`t work.

Our corals are doing well with it.

Alright, what do you about this onehttp://www.ebay.com/itm/PAR30-LED-Aquarium-coral-reef-light-Custom-made-BRAND-NEW-PAR38-nano-pico-tank-/200887079170?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item2ec5cd 9102

I couldnt find the wattage on there, maybe message the seller? Also the par 30 is smaller than the par 38. I saw the seller has a par 38 but its full spectrum, not blue/white.

This might be a better option, i know its more money but they are a reputable brand and its bigger.

I looked at it and it said the seller wasn`t able to be contacted.
