I would run the lights 12off/12on for chaeto. Plus, you can use a shop light (cheap aluminum ones) from Home Depot no problem for under 20 bucks with this bulb:

23 Watt - T2 CFL - 100 W Equal - 6500K Full Spectrum Daylight - 80 CRI - 70 Lumens per Watt - 15 Month Warranty - Energy Miser FE-IISB-23W-65K | 1000Bulbs.com
