6.5k cf outdoor light about $39.00 at HD, you will need to wire it,but approx. 500 watts using only about 65 watts

$40 is for the Lights of America Flood Light fixture & bulb complete, just has to be wired. I am using 2 of them on my 20 gal. tall refuge.

$10 is probably just for a bulb. I've heard that HD sells a bulb that people have alot of success with, but you'll need a clamp on socket for it. I'm not sure what the brand or type is. Hope this helps.

Usually the clip on light is found near the extension cords.

I use the LOA light (the 27w version) and it's great for growing macro. I've used a cf bulb (though not the exact one recommended by Melev) and had terrible results. No growth whatsoever.

not sure if HD carries those bulbs anymore. at least they don't in the Chicagoland area. but you can order them and have them shipped to your home. here is the info....

I've been using the HD $10 bulb with the clamp on socket. It works great for my fuge and the chaeto grows very well with it. I've also gotten purple coralline growing in there also. So strange.

40 is a lot i thought some ppl were paying 10???

I know at one point Sam's club had the fixtures with bulb for $8.99 after a rebate. Home depot was 27.99 for them last time I was there, and I got mine off of ebay for $19 shipped.

FWIW, I hade better chaeto growth under a 60w halogen floodlight than I do under my 65w LOA.
