I did this for my 20H vertical tank. I imagine the same idea would work. It gets about 78-80 at the very top inside the tank, I do not have a fan circulating the air inside the tank currently. (i am planning on adding one.) I went with 13w compact florescents because they are cheap and readily available. Each bulb was like $2, the sockets about $3, plywood was $5, and on-off switch was like $3. I had the fan and ac/dc adapter in my computer junk box. If your concerned about heat, you could have two fans, keep the whole box a bit off the glass and also cut "vents" on the top for the heat to escape.

And the broms are doing great. I have two 6500 "day light" bulbs and 2 warm whites. One of the broms recently flowered and all have bright colors.
