I got the $40 40gal breeder at PetCo and couldn't find the right lid... who needs one?? Even if I found a lid that fit, my emergent plants wouldn't be able to get enough light.
I gave up with conventional lights/hoods and came up with this DIY fixture. Takes care of plants with any light requirements (intensity and position) in a cheap and effective manner. Spot lights bought at WalMart for about $10/piece and the rest was just spare materials around my garage. Currently running two 20w 6500K CFLs (75W replacements) with a blue LED bulb for vegetative growth.
