Is a regular clf bulb ok for a fuge?

The fish store fuge light fixtuers are expensive, can I just use a clip on lamp with a regular light bulb for cheeto?

Certainly, that's exactly what I use. Just be sure to get the larger clip on lamps with the most powerful light you can manage. They might overheat so that's something to keep an eye on
