Refugium Lighting need input !!

Hello all
I'm looking for a clip-on/clamp-on, small LED fixture that will clip to the rim, or edge of my HOB refugium. I don't need anything powerful, or anything expensive. But of course nice looking, also does the light have to be on top of the refugium or can the light hit the clear side of the refugium? Or DIY ideas?

Again, If anybody has any suggestions?
Thanks!

There is this one. There are smaller ones for cheaper if you don't need on this big. But they are all good deals!

50 bucks? I don't know if you need that. Just go to home depot and get one of those 5 dollar clip on shop lights, and put a Curly-Q energy saver bulb in it and call it a day.....too ugly?

Mr_X oh yea more like my kind of budget there!!! Lol....do you if I need to point the light on top or the can the side work, also on the side will it burn out the plastic/acrylic ? Or the top should I remove the top ( yes it has a top) and let the light hit directly on the water?

As long as the plants are getting light, it doesn't matter where it's coming from, but algae is going to grow on that side pane very quickly. You will need to scrape it often.
