    I have a JBJ 28 gal nano which is currently not in use , I would like to toss the lid and suspend an LED light over it either clipped on or hung from the ceiling. I want something decent but that won't break the bank. What should I be looking at?

    It is a dry heat, yeah right !
    Yeah I hear excellent things about the Prime, and for the price, it would be perfect over a 28.

    Personally I prefer the Kessil A160w. It's friggin sweet and you can get the goosneck to attach it to your aquarium rather than hanging it from the ceiling. The shimmer is second to none, the spectrum is awesome, and the thing is silent. Plus, it's small but built like a tank.

    Or if money is really tight get a Chinese LED panel. I have 2 on my 60 and used them both on my 90. Great growth and color from them!
