A great little light for a freshwater to marine nano conversion featured

Comments I had a small 5.5 gallon tank I purchased at Wal-mart a long time a go that my daughter had been using to keep a couple of freshwater fish in. My daughter has always loved hermit crabs and keeps 6 tree-hermits in her room. After her two fish finally died she wanted to try a little saltwater hermit crab tank. I, of course, wanted to put a few mushrooms and zoanthus in as well! I found this light at PetCo and figured it was the perfect fit because it screws into a regular light bulb fixture.

The light was way brighter than the bulb her tank had on it and the fact that it was a 50/50 bulb gave a very attractive look to it. I was really pleased that for so little money I was able to have a brand new nano tank.

I don't know the limits of what you could keep under this light, but in my small tank keeping the two above mentioned coral types I had great success. I would feel comfortable trying some other corals as well, like Xenia, cloves, and maybe candy canes placed up a little.

To me, this is a seriously smart little invention and whoever thought of making a little 50/50 that screws into a regular light socket deserves a pat on the back. You could use this in a small tank, a frag tank, a QT, or over a refugium and be perfectly happy with the results for very little money.


Liked about it 1. Affordable.
2. 50/50.
3. Fits into a regular fixture.
4. Doesn't produce much extra heat.


Didn't like 1. Depending on your tank size this might actually be a bit bright for the room. Meaning the tank really glowed.

Great for small tanks!

Comments Both the 10w and 20w version are great for small salt tanks.


Liked about it Great color with a standard light bulb base that will screw right into the shop light reflectors.
An easy way to create a DIY project!


Didn't like Some of them, 1 in 10 have not worked for me. Just contact the seller and let them know!
