Anyone running PAR38 in their cubes?


Got some PAR38 bulbs today super cheap and want to put together a 7.5g aquatop starphire cube. Anyone got some nano cubes with PAR38's? Looking for ideas.

Don't have the tank yet. I got the bulbs as an impulse buy because they were cheap and then got to thinking about running a nano cubes so trying to get some idea before I order the tank.

Who makes cheap goosenecks? This sucker is bright so I would have to hang the light a good 2ft from top of tank.
