A 24" T5HO Jumpstart light fixture is around $30-40. They also sell 48" fixtures.

I was also going to suggest hydroponics T5s as a more economical, easier and energy-efficient choice in comparison with spiral Cfs.

Thanks for the suggestions, while searching for the right light i am going to use a 48'' that i bought for my previews 55g.
I randomly put the rocks and drift woods in the aquarium, the same goes for the plants.
Some Riparium plants and planters are in order, i will post 2 set of pictures: one without riparium plants, and the other with the plants when they arrive..
I am runing out of attachments, how can i post more pictures?

Get a Photobucket account. It is really cool how you can toy with pictures through them.

looking great, love your diy light stand, have you ever thought about using riparium planters and rafts? This is mine and you get a really nice effect from using them.
