Chaeto Question

I just got some Cheato from Ducky for my fuge. It was great stuff at a great price. Thanks Ducky! Anyway, I was wanting to get a small light from the lfs, but they don't have anything. So I went to Lowes and bought a metal fixture with a clip and a 65w spotlight bulb to get me by. I went to put it over the fuge and there is not enough room. So I have it shining through the plastic fuge on the side about an inch away.

Would it be better to put the macro in the overflow, because I have a little peice of my CF hanging over it, or what?

Chaeto does not need a ton of light. One of my fuges only gets bleed off light and I use a 20 watt CF bulb for my other fuge. You could try a smaller fixture too. There are different sizes of the cheap metal fixtures unless you have no room at all.
