if it's an incandescent light then try a screw-in compact flourescent.
for a filter take a look at the red sea nano

The red sea nano is only rated for tanks up to 3 gallons.

if you go into your local walmart you should be able to find some mini flouresen light bulbs, 10watts each and 6500k, they will screw right into incadesent light fixtures

I've had the eclipse filters on various tanks and pulled out the biowheel and just use a sponge in the filter compartment. The low light crypts and java can make a very elegant display if they're spaced just so...
