shoplights at Home Depot

I was in Home Depot today and saw some interesting shoplights. They were
only the equivilent of $10 American for 2 lamp 4' fixtures. The sockets
looked like they were molded into the endpieces of the fixtures and the
reflector was held in place by the same sockets/fixture ends. They look like
an ideal candidate for modifying for aquarium use. The reflector could be
covered with aluminized mylar and the ballast could be replaced with a high
quality electronic ballast. The total cost per fixture would only be just
over $40. They also looked like they were no more than 6" wide which would
allow 6 lamps to be mounted under a 90 gallon tank hood.
