As you are looking to purchase a canopy, I have moved your thread to the classifieds section of the forum

Before we inundate hanssg, bear in mind they are in the UK.
They mention the rekord 600 tank, which is s Jewel model and quid.

In the UK, there used to be readily available T8 to T5 adapters for light fixtures. That would be the simplest upgrade, to start with, if they are still readily available.

Here is a link to an example

IF these are available you can run 28 watt T5NO lamps in a T8 32/40 watt fixture.

Good luck.
