Another 2 gallon tank given to me!!

I was given yet another aquarium, and I'm pretty sure its two gallons.

Its labeled as a Mini-Bow, it came with a an UGF, a Penn-Plax Small World Air Pump it looks pretty old (still works). In the hood there is a 7 watt candelbra.

Anyone know anything about these aquariums?

And is it at all possible to remove the existing light and put something else in its place so it can give off more watts? (And I don't mean just replacing the bulb). Thanks.

I don't know anything about yours, but I have a 1 gallon (approx.) petco betta tank I'm gonna turn into a mini CRS tank. It has an UGF too which will get tossed in place of a sponge filter (sand substrate) and I plan to remove the night light it has for a bulb and will be putting in a LED array for a Java fern plant and some moss.

So if you have some DIY skills, anything can be rebuilt to your liking. If you post pics, I can give you some suggestions on what might be done for/to it.
