@P3 and Leroy: Thanks for your input!
Sadly I can't just get a new bulb because the lid only accepts 7w bulbs =.= and it also has a plastic casing on it (like a night light) to protect it from water, so I can't really just ram a new bulb in there that doesn't fit in the casing.
My desk lamp IS a halogen with UV protected glass (no tanning for me, lol) so I could use that but the lid is solid black... I don't want to take it off because then I'd have to lower the water level for safety and the tank is barely over 2.5 gal >_<...
Maybe if I can somehow find something to cover the top...*ponder*
EDIT: Also oh god I LOVE that little doghouse thing XDDD
