I need a new hood

for my 10 gal. I think the internal filter splashed too much water on the one I have and shorted it out. :/ I took the internal filter out and put my old HOB filter on.

So, I need a good 10 gal hood reccomendation. This is a standard 10 gal tank. I am wanting something that I can use the lights needed to grow plants as I want to give that a shot.

Any suggestions? I can't afford very much right now. My poor fishies are swimming around in the dark.

55 gal with betta, mollies, plattys, neons, danos, and other assorted fishies.

Hi nibor,
How much can you afford to spend?
For my ten gallon tank I use a glass top (under $10) and a strip light (the strip light sits on top of the glass). The strip light costs about $30 but it is a fluorescent bulb that works great for growing plants.
How's the tank cycling going with those Balloon Molly's?
