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.

Freshwater PAR38 - This light is great for freshwater tanks and refugiums.


Note: We highly recommend using these lights in a well-ventilated area for the maximum lifespan.

  • Very Nice light By Jeremiah on 11/7/2017

    I'm using this on a mixed 5L pico tank at about 50%. Corals love it. Got a Lowes lamp dimmer for this, and have flicker anywhere under 50%, not the light's fault. So I do wish BRS or Rapid would sell a gooseneck with a dimmer.. but alas... The light itself though does not get hot puts out a nice almost light lavender over all color. I'd get another one in a heartbeat.
  • Nice lights but don't last By TLR on 5/25/2017

    Bought two of these 8 months ago. Corals loved the lights and I was very happy with them until one died today. Not just one LED but the whole lamp simply clicked off. These are in an open air environment in an open fixture. There should be no over heating issues. A lot of money to have go so soon.
  • very nice By saltchip on 5/7/2016

    I have very happy with this light. Nice color etc. I have it on a 20 high. There are not any sps in that tank. I plan to try one though. The dimmer I purchased is a Lutron credenza for cfl and led lights. from A big box store. It is pretty long like an extension cord and works well. No flicker. The light has an 80 degree angle. I will buy another.
  • Great light! By JeffL on 4/28/2016

    This was the perfect light for my 10g tank, super easy to install and use. Had an old light fixture from Target that I repurposed and just took the lamp shade off of. Wife thinks it looks great as well!

Will a kessil a series mounting arm work on this?
This is URGENT!
Question by: Miles on Mar 28, 2016 3:32:00 PM
No, A kessil mounting arm is just a threaded mount for the kessil lights to mount to. The PAR bulbs fit into standard light bulb sockets. Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions!

Answer by: Connor (Admin) on Jun 2, 2016 3:47:00 PM
Hi I purchased this light for a 5 gallon and it's like 8-10 inches deep and I have the light about ten inches above the top of the water. How high should it be. Will it grow sps coral? And the triac dimmer I can't figure out what it is and can't find a reputable website to buy from. Do I need a triac dimmer?
Question by: Jakob on Mar 9, 2016 9:22:00 PM
Great question!Overl all you should mount the light high enough for even spread across the tank. This will be a little limited for a full SPS system however at higher levels int he water it certainly can work well! Any standard light socket outlet will work, the ones that come with dimmer switches instead of just on and off will have the triac built in. Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions!
Answer by: Connor (Admin) on Mar 10, 2016 4:37:00 PM
Your owners manual for this rapid led is showing a kessil light. Is there one that goes with it
Question by: Jakob on Mar 10, 2016 8:16:00 AM
Great question!
