Its basicly falls into a useless spectrum of light that plants won't benefit from of any at all...your local hardware store would have cfl's to fit your hood most likely..look for "daylight" cfl's at k values between 5000-6500k this being the optimal spectrum for which your plants will grow their best...personally I'd remove the halogens &replace with cfl's(daylight not full spectrum ,run cooler&more energy efficient) which can be done for less than $10...

Getcha feet wet fish tank people!
