In that case, I would just give it a try. If you find the light levels make it unmanagable you can always swap the bulbs out. Walmart has the 6500k 15 watt bulbs, and you can even get 9 watt cfl bulbs at the petco. post pics when it is operational. Mine was also a DIY 10 gallon hood, but my tank is low tech, low bioload, mineralized topsoil and thats it.
