I use a 6500k 23w cfl. you may not need this much light, I recommend a 13w light. this will satisfy most aquarium plant's lighting needs.
I also use a normal table lamp. but if you want something like a hood, there are 12.5 in perfecto hoods selling on amazon.
the color temperature of your light is very important. otherwise you may get some nasty algae :/
