    Can anyone suggest an appropriate light bulb for a small/medium Wabi Kusa? It's about 20cm in diameter.

    I was thinking more like a generic light bulb rather than an aquarium/wabi kusa specific one. Could something like a 13w fluorescent work?

    Cheers

    Yes the Janso from Ikea are good. I have 2 for my wabi's. It only costs a tenner + about £4 del if you can't go to the store.

    The Jansjö do give off nice light but they are only rated at 2w.
