Question on ahsupply 13w retrofit

Has anyone here used, or personally seen a 13w retrofit kit on a Eclipse system 6? If so, does anyone know if you can keep the 8 watt fixture thats in there and add on the 13w so you get 13+8? (if so, i would assume you have to go to a HOB filter.) I'm thinking about getting this kit to kick up my wattage....any info you guys have would be great. I tried doing a search but i couldnt find much...

i did it but it wasn't pretty. it's really tough to fit the fixture in there, and even if you do only the front of the tank gets much light. it also gets pretty warm in there.
