I have my 10 gallon lit with the 2x13W bright kit from AH supply (www.ahsupply.com
); Does very well for my FW
planted, I imagine it'd work fine for a reef setup with a couple of actinic bulbs.
They have instructions on building a simple DIY hood, and modifing existing hoods to take thier systems... I built my own, worked out pretty well for me. Only took a saturday.
If you'd like to mod an existing hood for more light you could go ODNO (over driven normal output) flourecent; Basically you buy a ballast ($30-$40) at home depot or online and replace the one in your purchased hood. Can double output of NO flourecents, if you get a big enough ballast. seach ODNO and you should come up with something useful.
Not sure of what wattage you require for your setup; I'm not too familiar with SW
. Maybe someday... but I HTH
