Set up a cool 5 gallon fish tank that I had when I was a kid (found it in the basement, had to do lots of cleaning!) Anyways, it's got a unique light setup, coming from a little dome underneath. The problem is, it isn't properly lit. The lid leaves no place for a bulb to be put on top, so I'm wondering if there is a light that can be purchased to be put in the aquarium or mounted on the back? Anything to help boost the light in the tank, it's not even visible enough to actually see the fish in a dark room, it looks like a dim nightlight.

Awesome tank though, I hope to get it figured out so that way I can use it :D

If the dimensions of the 5 gallon tank are 16"x8"x10", mainly 16" long, then you can get one of single flourescent striplights, like this...

Or a complete hood and light, like this...

Or you can get one of those clip on CF lights, like this...

It's a hexagon tank, thanks for the suggestions though :D

A friend of mine sells water proof cold cathode flouresence lighting on his site at Cheap too.
