I picked up a clip on light at Home Depot. My question is what kind of bulb I should put into the lamp for my fuge. I want to put some chaeto in there but I want to make sure I put in the appropriate light. Thanks for the help in advance.

Soft white 2700k 42 watt lights from home depot is what I use. Grows the stuff like crazy.

I read 6700k is also a good light spectrum.

I use this one, works good for me. Look for a bulb that simulates daylight is usually the spectrum u looking for. http://www.homedepot.com/h_d1/N-5yc1vZ1xgl/R-100687004/h_d2/ProductDisplay?langId=-1&storeId=10051&catalogId=10053
