trouble with aquarium hood lights

Recommended Posts

ok so my tank came with 2 13w t5 14000k white lights and i want to plant the tank and iv been doing research and it said, I need 3 watts per gallon, meaning i need at least 100 watts, since my tank is about 37 gallon. So my question is, how can i get the light i need if my aquarium hood will only let me put in no bigger than a 20" tub. can you get tubs that size that are over 40w each?

tank is a 140l blue planet with hood and stand
