Compact Flourescent Lighting

Hi all! Well, I have finally realized that I am in bad need for stronger lighting for my 55 gallon planted tank. I have my Clown & Kuhli L:oaches in it. I have the standard hood that came on the tank when I bought it, and just recently decided to switch over to all live plants. Well, I realize now that my 2 17" lights (F15T8/BR) are only putting out like 30 watts of light total, so am now looking at converting over to Compact Flourescent lighting. Any suggestions as for a good supplier? Will I need a whole new hood, or is there some type of converter I can use?? Any help would be appreciated!!
