Refugium/Freshwater PAR38 Bulb

- 2 UV LED's
- Screws directly into standard lamp sockets (E26/E27)
- Dimmable with Triac

If you have a nano or pico tank with a fairly small footprint the RapidLED PAR38 lights are perfect for your tank. PAR38 lamps can either be the main light source or be an accent to a larger light.
Actinic PAR38 - Great for adding that extra pop to your corals you will not normally see during daylight hours. Spectrum range from 420nm to 480nm
Daylight Reef PAR38 - Awesome daylight LED light for pico reef tanks. Emits a 17,000 K - 20,000 K spectrum which will allow your corals to grow fast and healthy with great coloration.
Refugium PAR38 - Producing roughly 10,000 K spectrum that will efficiently grow macroalgae and other types of plants. This light can also be used on freshwater tanks.
Note: We highly recommend using these lights in a well ventelated area for the maximum lifespan.
Don't buy By Brandon on 6/10/2018Brandon wouldn't recommend this product to a friendDoesnt seem like a good light to have over a fuge in a stand. Burnt out after 6 months and was not able to grow chaeto. Bug waste of money

Lasted 3 months! By Michael on 6/29/2017Michael wouldn't recommend this product to a friendLight works well at first but started strobbing after three months. Really not good enough for a light at this price point !
Work well but not last By Kiki on 3/19/2017Kiki wouldn't recommend this product to a friendMy second one just died a few days ago. The first one I purchased work very well for 6 months and just died off, I contacted BRS, and they sent me a replacement one, still work very well on growing algae, but just died off a few days ago, and it's also about 6 months lifetime. Giving 2 stars because I'm very please with the growing rate.
Macroalgae not growing By Nick on 11/27/2016Nick wouldn't recommend this product to a friendI have two of these over my 20 gallon refugium. Lights are 4 inches above the water line. The light looks good and bright but they do not grow macroalgae.
Not recommended By Lyndon on 10/12/2016Lyndon wouldn't recommend this product to a friendLasted about six months, then started flashing like a strobe light. So much for long life of led's.
Worked great for about 6 months and just died By Ricardo on 8/10/2016Ricardo wouldn't recommend this product to a friendWorked great for about 6 months and just died
Not good for refugiums By Brandon on 7/4/2016Brandon wouldn't recommend this product to a friendThis light gets very hot without a dimmer. It over heated my tank as I do not have a chiller, luckily I DO have an apex which stopped the temp from going beyond reason. If you do buy this light make sure you have a way to cool your tank or a way to dim down the power.
. By Vish on 4/24/2016Vish would recommend this product to a friendAs a big fan of rapid led. I decided to buy this Par38 for a frag tank. set it up on a 20 long tank.. It's 6 inchs of the water.. A friend as me to keep a brown out sps for him. It's been a month now and the coral has almost color up.. Would definitely buy again
Will this work for a algae turf scrubber
This certainly could work depending on set up, It does have proper spectrum for some good algae.
Does the goose neck come with this? or do i have to buy it separately, and if so what model?
This will not include any gooseneck. This will screw into any light socket unfortunately we do not currently have options available. Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions!
