light for a cylinder aquarium?

I recently obtained an ADF + tank from a coworker, it has a lid but no lights or anything. I was hoping to add some freshwater plants for the poor guy, but have no where to start on a light for the tank. Was thinking of using a regular screw in flourecent bulb, but I don't think just putting a fixture on the inside of the lid is exactly a good idea. The lid is plastic. Or should I ditch the lid all together and do something else?





sorry those aren't the best pics I only have my ipod.

Try finding a small LED fixture you could silicone into the lid. Depending on diameter of tank you might be able to DIY a new lid from a cap for large PVC pipe from local hardware store
