Fuge lighting?

I have a 10g fuge that I just setup last weekend (with a bag of sand, so it is probably like 7g). I need to pick up a light for it before Sunday as I will be getting some Chaeto hand delivered that day

What light would you suggest?

Depending on what you want the appearance to be, you could just get a 20 watt screw in CF bulb. Home Depot sells a 20 watt CF bulb for around $8. It is a 6500K bulb.

This is what I use on my rubbermaid fuge along with a cheap clamp on work light fixture.

That will probably due. It is under my stand in a rubbermade style container so it isn't a "show piece".

Thanks!
