Just a suggestion on ghetto lighting. You can pick up a conical reflector at lowes or home depot for roughly 12 dollars. They can handle up to 150 watt's. They aren't polished, but are a bit reflective, and can help to turn your CFL into a more directed light. (Getting more into the tank).

They come with clamps, but if you have some luck, you can usually figure out how to hang them as well.

Here's what I mean.

That was 3x 23 watt CFL's with conical reflectors on a 20L. WAY WAY too much light! I think two would have been much more realistic!
