Was just wondering ,if a 20w power compact light would be enough light for a fuge with chaeto. if so, what would be the best bulb for chaeto growth.

You prolly want something in the 6500 to 10k range of lighting to grow chaeto.

If you mean a 20W equivalent, then probably not, but if it's a 20W CFL then should be good. But, as mentioned, look for a 6500K. I got mine at Walmart, they had both the regular spiral and flood bulbs. I had to move my light to around 4" off the water.
