I am looking to do my first planted tank aquascape with a Fluval Chi. I am looking for a light that will be able to grow some high light plants and I know that the light that comes with the tank will not work.
Some of the lights that I have looked at are the Fluval Mini Power Compact Lamp - 13W http://www.amazon.com/Fluval-Mini-P...47021&sr=8-5&keywords=nano+fish+tank+lighting and the BeamsWork 11" Double Ultra Bright LED Clamp-on Aquarium Light Fixture - 9x1W http://www.amazon.com/BeamsWork-Dou...1&sr=8-14&keywords=clip+on+fish+tank+lighting
I am hoping to not spend a considerable amount on this because this is my first planted tank and this is only going in my office at work.

If you don't want to spend a lot, why don't you buy a simple desk lamp and put a CFL in it?

Buy a zoomed light stand, and zoomed mini deep done reflector. Use a cfl. Saves you space, doesn't look bad, and gives you the options of how strong you want your light to be
