Eclipse 1 hood

Hello, I have a 15 gallon tank with an eclipse 1 hood and am wanting to know if a 2 lamp version of this hood would be ok for a planted tank, or if something else would be better?

I'm in the same situation as you, I have a 15 gal with a single-tube Eclipse 1 hood. I wasn't able to find any new twin-tube hoods, which leads me to believe they don't sell them anymore. In any case from what I've read on this forum 30/32 watts in a 15 gal is on the low side for a lot of plants, but better than a single 15W tube. Right now I am working on trying to fit 3x15W bulbs in the Eclipse, excess heat seems to be a problem though.
