Retrofit 12 Gallon Marineland?

I currently have a 12 gallon Marineland aquarium with the stock lighting (13 watt CFL), and I was wondering if there was a somewhat simple way to get better lighting in the hood?
I've been reading some threads about DIY LEDs but it all seems like it's in a foreign language...

DIY a LED light is good if you are reasonably confident in your ability to learn and do something and are interested in learning. But "simple" is not the best word to describe it.

Simple DIY would be adding another CFL, or assembling a 24 watt bright light kit from AH Supply.
