i play mostly rock, like classic rock, for jammin with bands i have a 100watt amp, now im looking for a practice tube amp with a nice sound for rock not for metal.

The best tube amp for $400 would have to be the Peavey Valve King 112. Great value, and great sound. Of course, it is a 100 watt amp. Maybe go for the Blackhart 5 watt if you want a practice amp

what is this 100 watt amp? you can completely replace it with a 15-30 watt tube amp and still practice in your room

the 112 is 50 watts. and id recommend you a classic 30.

The Valveking 112 is not a 100w amp, it's 50w

Now i want to buy a tube amp for practice, so i dont wake up the nabours and thats why i need one with like 5 watt, or 15w.

youre probably better off getting a 15-30 watt tube amp. you can use that for band practice and it will probbly sound better overall at lower volumes too. if you strictly want an amp that you can play in your bedroom, you should get a solid state/modeling amp (peavey vypyr). youll get quiet volumes and versatility. but i say completely replace your fender and get a 15-30 watt amp to practice in your band and at home.

go to a shop and try stuff out.
classic 30, palominos (dont know if they still have them), maybe a valveking (youll probably like the classic 30 more than the VK).

Depending on where you live, there are plenty of good 15-30 watt tube amps for $400. Classic 30, Blues Jr, Laney VC or LC series. Go try them and then search used.

That's a bit backwards. Use your Fender for home practice, turn down the volume knob. It's a solid state amp, it doesn't need to be cranked, nor is it that loud.

Buy a new amp for band practice - a tube one.

I say this because 5W tube is still very loud.
