Dennis, I got such a tank for cheap at a Goodwill store, but the Chief
Aesthetic Officer said no.  But I did think about how to light it while I
had it (about 12 hours).  I thought I would use a loaf pan for bread for a
reflector and a 22" 96watt compact florescent tube.   I don't think that
would cost much.   And it would give you a good idea if you were on the
right track.
