Currently running a 10g planted tank. I'm thinking of picking up a cube and will transfer everything over from my 10g. The 10g is currently lit up by 2 13w 5000k spiral cfls, obviously the hood wont fit on a rimless 12x12x12 cube.

I'll be repurposing my current 'manhattan' 10-20g stand, so i'll have 8" of leeway should i decide to use a desk lamp. Would a Hampton Bay lamp be a good option? I've also seen the style with the legs that elevate the light over the tank, such as the 'fishneedit' brand. Any advantage or disadvantage to one style versus the other?

Im planning to stay in the low to medium range.
