Heres a link that has some really nice retrofit kits that you can probably work right into the hood you already have or you can build a canopy for your tank and mount these kits to it. I bought a 110 watt compact flourescent kit and monted it into my 40 watt strip light. nice prices too. http://ahsupply.com/
