Thats a shame. Lighting is one of the top requirements if you ask me!

What's your budget?

Hmm 55 huh?

you can get a dual strip deluxe hood from like pet club or petco for cheap
and then use like 2x40 watt t8's that should average just under 2watts per gallon.

I think that'll be just over 100 dollars.
