Question 24" incandescent to fluorescent

How difficult/pricey would it be transform my hoodlight to fluorescent? A 24" fluorescent hood runs about 40$ at petsmart. Wanting to try and keep what I have and not send more than 20$

just go to a home improvement store and get regular 13/14 watt daylight CFLs and they will fit.
