This is what I use. I have two, but removed one because two was overfill/

Tunze Refugium Light
I was looking at those because I like the design but they aren’t 25 bucks.. I’m thinking maybe the incandescent fixture with an led bulb might have the least light spill. I have no idea though I never set up a refugium

I understand. I missed the poll at the top somehow, sorry about that!

If you're talking about the one I recommended, you can position it so the light only shines on a particular area.

Isn’t 100 watts overkill? That’s one reason I’m probably discarding the groestar.
They say 100- Not at all bright to say its 100. I like 50wt which is on amazon also
