Walmart "kit" fixtures

So as I was digging through my storage, I came across a few hoods from the walmart "kits". They are as follows:
2x Model 24RFH, Rated 120VAC, 60Hz, 17W (from the 55 kit 24inch)
2x 20PFH, Rated 120VAC, 60Hz, 17W (from 10 gallon tanks, 20 inch)

These are flourescents, not incandescents. They are VERY similar to the "perfecto" series of flourescents.

My question is: what can I do with these fixtures with low monetary input?
May I modify them in any way to get better light output? Has anyone tried?

Answers which are not helpful: "trash them" "give them to me" "buy AH stuff and place inside"


PS Im going to post the same thing in lighting section so dont be mad because some people dont look at both.
