Red Sea Dragonfly light


Has anyone used these with good results? I'm thinking of getting one for my Ocean Free tank. I believe it's 7 watts, but that should be enough to grow a couple of crypts and some java moss/fern, correct? Right now there's a betta and two really sad tiny baby crypts in the tank. It's about time I did something serious with the darn thing!

Also, if I do get one of these, would I be able to paint it black? If so, what sort of paint would I need?

Thanks!

Well, I guess these things must not be popular for the nano tank crowd. Oh well, thanks anyway!

its not that their not popular, they just are not that easy to come by in the US. i had the hardest time finding a nano clip on light of any size, ended up buying one of those red sea tank kits just for the light and filter, threw the tank away (cheap plastic). i found 7w a little to low for most plants except mosses, and ended up buying some galaxy lights (13w) from dr fosters and smiths. oh and i painted my dragonfly black also, (just took it apart and used krylon), looks much better than those garish colors they come in.
