I think this is what I would do as well. I've never used the CFLs, but this seemed to be a good solution. I guess the only thing is that the fixtures may need to be staggered or angled to fit (I think they are 20" long). This wouldn't bother me as much as not having the entire tank lit though, and it could probably be fixed with a mitre saw, some epoxy, and some time at the work bench.

I was just going to say you could always cut it. Then again I'm on a power tool, chop things up, kick right now. My new tool set for Christmas almost drives the wife as nuts as the aquarium lol.

I also think the 4 x CFL is your best bet.

Kangy, the whole Byron coming my way thing was a joke haha

I did test fit the fixtures yesterday and noticed they'd be a bit staggered but I'm fine with that. I don't think I'm going to cut them incase I need them for whatever reason in the future. I'll try and get some bulbs today for them and post up some pictures on the results.
