Go to your local hardware store and pick up 2 clip on lights, and place them on the side of the tank, then get a "daylight" bulb or something of the equivalent kelvins and you have your solution.

Well that sounds great! But I don't really know what you mean by clip on lights. A quick browse of The Home Depot website and all I see are either $100 lights or like $3 reading lights
Care to elaborate ?

Are you talking about the previous poster? The whole idea of getting rid of the trim and hood if to make it look more nice / clean lol
As for the CO2
, I'm not 100% yet. Wouldn't that depend on the type of plants / lights / substrate? Either way, if it's necessary or it'll help I'm willing to get it.
Also I forgot to mention that I found a light fixture on Ebay that was pretty cheap, but I found no indication that says you are able to grow plants with it. It's called "Aquarium LED
18" Beamswork Light Freshwater Tropical Fish Hi Lumen Light". I have no idea what's required to grow different plants ( brightness?, color?, heat???.. no idea.. ), so I have no way of telling if that's good enough or not..
