Whats the cheapest moonlighting?

I have a 36" strip light I could convert if its possible.Or if theres a plug and play thats cheap I could go that route.A 12" would work also just to highlight centerpiece.

If not exposed to moisture, a Christmas tree LED light set works well. Should be around $5 after Christmas. Just attach in fixture and plug in.

I would if it was dark enough to get a picture lol.
The cabinet lights are soft and white.
They make my tanks light enough for fish viewing but do not seem to disrupt the day to night cycle. I'm fairly certain that these things couldnt even grow java moss...
Sometimes they are a bit spotlighty.. but I normally ghetto fab it and tape some white paper over it to soften the light.
