Aquaone lighting replacement.

I have an aquaone tank with a propose built hood. The hood has a centre bar with 2 hinged flaps either sized to allow access to feed, clean etc. My lighting unit is a T8 which is seperate from the hood and sits in a glass shelf and i want to up grade this.
On the new aquaone models the centre bar in the hood is a T5 lighting unit, what i want to know does anyone know where i can buy the centre bar / T5 lighting unit so i can upgrade my lighting.
I have been to 4 differant store and they all tell me that it isnt in the aquqone parts manual, but i am sure there must be a way to buy one.
This would save me having to remove my hood to fit a over tank unit.
I am based in the UK, so Uk site / shops only please.

I'm not familiar with Aquaone, but have you considered a retrofit kit? I may be wrong, but you could probably just switch the connectors that the bulb plugs into. A couple cuts, some solder, and some heat-shrink tubing, and you should be in business. I don't think you'd need to replace the ballast. Don't go on just my opinion though.
