WTB light for Pico

Recommended Posts

Looking for a light for my 5g pico in the $50 range. Looking to grow zoas and LPS. I would love it if it had some controllability too. Located in Utah.

A.m.P

If you don't need control-ability just grab an ABI tuna blue PAR bulb from amazon, a timer, and a lamp fixture from walmart. It'll cost you less than $50, has great color pop, and can grow SPS corals without issue, for lower-light stuff you might actually have to keep even the lower-watt version fairly-high above the tank (10"+).

If you do a quick forum-search you'll find quite a few different PAR38 bulbs used by various folks for reef jars, including some lower-power alternatives which could stay closer to the surface of your tank.
