Lightbulb 14" Flourescent for Hexagon Hood Retrofit Ideas?

I got a 28-gal hexagon plexi-tank last week, complete with everything for $15!
Just wondering if any one here have any idea to modify a 14" flourescent lighting?

I have a 35 hex and have the same issues.. Just too tall and narrow to light properly for a planted tank. I was thinking fo using an incadecent hood and using those spiral flourecent bulbs, but they have low K..

Mini4x, I finally found some LumiX FL bulb in my local Walmart
It's 27W, with 6500K (Daylight)
It's a screwed-on power compact Flourescent bulb
