You may have more luck in finding answers in the planted tank forum. The posters there have to deal with lights on a very regular basis. Another website for retrofit kits for your existing lighting set up.

good luck and hope this helps

The 34.5" 96W kit on that Aquarium Supplies site looks tempting. The hood looks easier to make than I thought, too. I guess you can just place those things on top of a glass canopy?

yeah they go ontop of the glass canopy. I think the glass canopy may reflect some of the light going into the tank though. I don't have a lid on my planted tank. I bought a light like the one you got. I'm going to build a hood and just mount the lights on the inside. I may need to get a reflector to reflect the light downwards into the tank but ill wait and see. the one I got is 40 watts per light and theres 2 lights @ 48 inch long.
