Hi everybody,
I set up my 29 gallon tank about 5 months ago and I bought a 55 watt pc about a month ago. Today the idea struck me to add my old 20 watt strip light to the glass canopy. It barely fit. Pretty soon (hopefully sunday) I will be making a hood from wood. Right now I think all I can fit is those two lights. This is a problem because I want a jungle in my tank and 2.5 watts isn't getting very fast growth. Is there a way I could fit more bulbs in.

Just a general overview of the lights

Can I just remove the plastic cover on the power compact. Is there a way that I can get just the bulb and put that in my hood. The plastic case is sooo bulky and it doesn't look like its really doing anything. Perhaps there is a way to remove it. This way when I have my hood I can fit possible one more strip light. I think maybe it's because it gets so hot. Can I Just have a lot of vents and fans in my hood.

Thanks for the input
