No, they are not compatible. The Aqueon hood requires a T8 bulb. The T5 is a different size and has different power requirements than a standard T8 fixture. However, the Aqueon with the T8 should be fine for a 10 gallon shrimp tank as long as you keep your plants in the low light species (anubias, java fern, hornwort, anacharis, etc.). I've grown all those under a stand Aqueon hood with a standard gro-light bulb and they were fine.
