what does your light fixture look like? I only ask because the fixture that came with my ten gallon could never fit a decent fluorescent lamp.

if your fixture isn't tall/wide enough, I would recommend just getting a short flourescent desk lamp fixture and building youself a simple hood from a few peices of plywood. Just go to home depot/lowes/whatever and look around for simple and cheap fixture that are the same length as your tank.

but be sure to seal your new plywood hood up with something to waterproof the wood, otherwise condensation will build up on the inside and rot the wood.
