Hi, I just bought a 26 gallon bowfront tank, it comes with a standard light, i wanted to grow some low light plants in PFS, . The Coralife is 28 watts total, the Nova is 48 watts total, I think they are both T5 fixtures. I have a cover on the tank, plastic it has a window fo the light fixture, can I jut put the new fixture on top of that or do I need a regular glass top with the new light on top ? :biggrin:

Both the 36w and 55w kits will fit in your fixture. There are some pictures of them on AHSupply's site.

The only difference between the 36w and 55w kit is the reflector. Both kits are the same price. The 36w kit uses a 17¼" reflector and the 55w kit's reflector is 22" long. You may want to order the 55w kit and a 36w bulb.
