Question spec 2, upgraded light

restarting my spec 2 as a shrimp planted tank.
I would love to update the light to something that will grow low light crypts and such.
It currently has the fluvial shrimp stratum and not looking to change that, along with some moss.

The light doesnt need to work with the stock lid. I am on track to custom build a cover that allows wires for the heater and such.

thx

I see a lot of folks upgrading their Spec light to the http://www.amazon.com/Fluval-Mini-Power-Compact-Lamp/dp/B004QSV8XK/. My used tank came without the power unit for the light, so I'm also in search of an upgrade/replacement. Looking forward to seeing what you use.

Looks like a good option. I am partial to LEDs though and I think I remember reading that you have to mod that fixture in order to not use their bulbs?
