DIY Canopy Lighting Help?

Hey guys. Just bought a beautiful 55 gal set up off of craigslist. It has a solid wood canopy on top but no light source since the plastic hood broke prior to me buying. Any suggestions on easy cost effective lighting ideas? If you know of a site or video that walks through instructions please share away. Thanks guys!

If you want DIY check you tube for diy led videos. you van build one for under 100$ and it should be enough to grow some plants and the best part is you can always as more as your budget allows.

Or if you want a bit less technical you can just get some daylight compact fluorescent bulbs and some cheap clip on fixtures 4 should be more then enough to light up your 55.
