Doing exactly this I was able to put 2 13watt CFLs in my 10 gallon for less than $15 and 30 minutes of work/planning. Nice write up! I will have to get some foil. was thinking of spraying the inside white but I like the foil tape idea better.

The OP shows the lights wired in parallel. Do not try to wire this set up in series. It will cut the voltage and most CFLs can not deal with low voltage. Ones that are dimmable can.

I lined mine with foil tape today, WOW, what a difference. I have a lot more light now. Thank you.
