Look in my shrimp 10g link below. I have used 2 types of light. One gave me so much light I ended up with green hair algae. Since it was a shrimp tank I had to dose very lean. I then went back to the 13 W spiral florescence bulbs. You need to paint your hood underneath white. You don't need to buy a new hood to reach the bottom. Trust me - you can get more light than you need by getting different bulbs....
