I have a 5g tank, I had for abt 6 years and I seriously got fed up with that cheap incascedent fixture that came with it! I can't even fit those small compact flourscent I think I should remove the hood and just put a glass piece, and use those double-fixtures? But how could I make a reflector, could I put a piece of foil on top of it? Confused

Coralife makes a great compact fluoresent screw in bulb that will fit in almost every tank. It fits in my 5g hex tank so it should fit in yours. My plants look wonderful and are bushing out all over.
