I want to get the right light for my nano tank but i just don't know what to look for in a aquarium light for saltwater tanks. I have freshwater tank lights but I know that those aren't for saltwater. Any recommendations? For those who want to know, my tank is 17.5 inches long and 12 inches wide so, I need a light to cover that area.

If I only had $100 to spend on a light, I’d probably look for a AI Prime HD. They can usually be found used for around that price. 
 

If you’re wanting new, I know there’s lots of people on this forum that like the Nicrew lights. I’ve never used them, so I’ve got no opinion on them.

Search on Facebook Marketplace,OfferUp,Reef2Reef. Here its harder the hardware thread has taken a hit here lately and sales have slown down dramtically. 

 

 Primes,Kessil A80 Tuna Blue & A150 Tuna Blues,AquaKnight (on Amazon,the 3 cluster version) are like $65-$70 amazing little light for the price. AquaKnight V2's are about $120-$150.

 

 There are cheaper lights that can be used,but the quality of the componets of the foxture are going to be your limiting factor,and the companies warranty and return policies. I will tell you know,one thing you don't want to buy cheap is a light. They work,they do the job but you will ALWAYS spending more money upgrading time and time again. I suggest buying a used AI Prime,and going that route. Save yourself some money.
