Light for 5 gal?

Hey folks. I currently don't have a lid for my 5 gal and I'm thinking about just making a screen one. My issue is finding a light for it that won't weigh down the lid I plan on making. Does anyone know of a good clip-on light for a 5 gallon tank?

Am I inferring correctly that you are going to grow live plants? I use a desk-lamp with a curly CFL 15W, 6500K. Not elegant, but it works. A hanging light looks better, just more work.

Cling film lets the light in and keeps in the warm moist air.
