Lighting upgrade

I have a biocube 29 and wanted to upgrade the lights. Was wondering what is a good upgrade with keeping the hood on. I tried to get in touch with Dave at nano box but no luck. What are my options? Thanks

Are you looking to stay with power compacts (assuming not HQI) or move to LED?

LED has many options from buying a retrofit hit, to buying a hood thatís been retrofitted to creating your own DIY setup. I looked at dismantling a black box LED and installing under the splash guard in a Biocube 29g before I found a deal on an HQI (running said black box now).
