The problem with using fluorescent bulbs is that any 24" hood is going to have to use bulbs that are shorter than 24". The reason is that the 24" bulb won't leave additional room for the end caps for them and it would hang over...

Going for low light, you may be able to get away with a marineland single bright or double bright LED fixture. I'd say with only 12" depth you could shoot for the single bright, but someone else may correct me on that.
