Lighting suggestions

I bought a hagen all in one 10 gallon aquarium kit a while back, and the light is only 15 watts, eventually when I want to start adding corals and a possible anemone, this obviously will not be enough, but I am a bit confused about how to upgrade. It does not appear that the light fixture will come out of the hood, so does that mean I will need a new hood with more built in lighting? or is there something I can add to the existing hood? or is there a bulb with more wattage that will fit in the ballast thats in there now? What light kits could you recommend for a standard size 10 gallon tank? I know you dont need a hood, but I prefer the look with it on, and evaporation is minimal with the hood.

i think youll have to measure the light itself, then shop for a lighting/fixture combo to fit. you can try drfostersmith.com or auqatraders.com
