Hood and light combos are usually junk, especially the one you linked. I would find a light that you like and make a diy hood out of screen framing and deer netting.

They are decent, but if you were planning on going with t5ho I would suggest getting an aquatic life fixture instead. They are a lot better than the coralife fixtures.

As a FOWLR get whatever you want. You can use the current light/change out the bulb.
