fuge light

looking for a good light for my fuge.....I've tried some and I get no growth what so ever. Any ideas would be helpful. Also, I have a little cyano growing in there as well, so I kind of need a light asap. Thanks.

In mine I just use an energy efficient bulb, still grows perfectly well, and with cheaper bulbs I can spend more on equipment. it's on 24/7 as well. The algae has grown so much since I've had it, at least doubled in size within about 2 months.

I'm using a macro gro 25 watt fixture on my fuge, BUT a simple home depot clip on light and a swirly bulb should also work just fine. And cheap too.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

I have an old compact fluorescent light I used on a 2 gallon at one time over my fuge I will probably go with the Jonty's or Carey's idea of the screw in bulb when mine burns out. It is much cheaper to replace.
