Lighting

Hey everyone! I have a 10 gallon (10x10x20) and I want to know what lighting is best for growing plants and that fits the 20" length. I can't hang lights from above, would like one that sits over the tank or clamps on. Having trouble finding a T5 fixture that is small enough.

It depends if you are using pressurized CO2 or not ? I have low tech/no CO2 tanks
I use mini CFLs screwed into my stock hood.
These grow lots of low/med light plants.
