20g lighting options!! t5ho vs led vs stock hood mod


im getting ready to set up a 20 tall and not sure of which lighting route to go with

1. Dual t5ho 2x 24w fixture 24" extendable to 30" for $45. im currently leaning towards this option just because it is extendable, in case i want to use it on another tank.

2. Finnex Ray II led, or similar for $100

3. Modding my stock hood, a topfin 20 hood with a single 18" t8 fixture. I would remove the fixture and throw in some LED strips. not sure how much this would cost or how much work is involved yet...

any help/suggestions is appreciated!!
