That's because your insisting on a "hood". Unless you buy one and adapt a light to fit it
you will not get one. First you have enough ligh to grow most common plants/w one T8 bulb in a 15g tank. Aqueon makes a "full spectrun" bulb for that which is very bright.
Second a clamp on regular light fixture can use CFL bulbs and only cost $10 at Home Depot. Paint the outside of it black and hang it over the top of the tank. Just get the 11-14W bulb in 6500K or you will fry your tank. People just take off the clamp and put a shelf bracket over the tank to hang it from.
