Question Neon Question

Okay, here is my question...I have a cold cathode in my case, and I just bought a sound-activated neon today , and I can just barely see the neon flashing with the cathode on. Does anybody know of a setup where I can see the cathode light, and the neon flashing? Or did I just waste my money?

Help is much appreciated.

Yea I really shouldn't have bought the neon. (I should have just bought a cold cathode sound activated module) but I think I will move the cathode somewhere else. But for now, I just have it turned off.
Thanks for the help!

lol....i remember the fridge case now. I would try it if it wern't for the whole condensation thing. But I don't think it will happen for me anytime soon.
By the way, I tried putting the cathode outside the case, and it is so bright that you cant see inside it. I may try and put the neon outside. Thanks again for the help
