lighting for 29g fuge
 
got my 29g cube set up and running yesterday. yayy, me!

there is a design flaw in this tank where, in order to change out the carbon filter, the whole light assembly has to be removed. i'm thinking i'll just go with some cheato in the fuge and do away with the carbon filter all together. would this be acceptable? and do i need to buy the "custom" light or what else would you suggest for lighting the fuge? i don't have a lot of clearance between the wall and the tank.

By all means, get that carbon outta there. Cheato would be more helpful.
Lighting can be done cheaply with a flourescent light or you can get extravegant with LEDs.
