Tagging along. Nice setup.

Pom Poms are awesome, but mine is pretty reclusive most of the time. However, my cleaner shrimp are the life of the party. Always front and center and come to the front edge of the tank to greet me.

that could work
its so inexpensive
you could also do one PAR bulb
have you look at rapidled for DIY? They have square heat sinks that would work perfectly over this
