Lighting solutions for a 44 gallon pentagon?

I have a 44 gallon corner pentagon tank. Same height as a 120 gallon tank, but an odd shape. Lighting for this tank is a challenge. The 2 long sides (that are against the wall) are about 21", with 3 11" sides in the front.

I don't want metal halide lamps, I want PC. I found some 28 watt fixtures that are 9" long and figured I could possibly fit 7 in a custom hood, but wondered if anyone here know of a small PC lamp that I could configure to this odd-shaped tank.
We'll be fighting in the streets with our children at our feet, and the morals that they worshipped will be gone.

And the men who spurred us on sit in judgment of all wrong, they decide and the shotgun sings the song.
