Thinking Of Upgrading Lights

I recently bought a 60G Saltwater Tank, and it's on the opposite wall in the same room as my 55G Cichlid tank.

Needless to say, the SW T5 lights put the Cichlid tank to shame. Thing is, I don't really want to have the open top. I have the standard 2 Hood/24 Inch ( I think) 2 bulb setup.

Obviously I guess something brighter will work, but I'm wondering if I'm going to be able to get what I'm looking for with the standard hood.
The tank just looks drab, especially with all the hornwort sucking up color and greening the tank.

Any suggestions?
I was thinking about Moonlighting as well, but I can't find anything with the hood I have, you know?

Buy a retro fit kit, you can install it into any hood or lighting strip you have. For my 110, it came with a 48" light strip which I pulled all the guts out of and installed a CFL retro fit kit in. Same housing, much better lighting. I get my kits from ahsupply. I've also installed one of them into the top of my DIY hood.
