Are the light bulbs proprietary to this tank/company/brand, or are they available at a typical home center?
Is there any provision on the back of the hood for the addition of wires or hoses, for heaters or air lines?
Does the hood have any provisions for installing a hang on back filter?
It would be nice for the customer if there was a picture of each tank from the back side, showing the hood. :)
This might have answered all the above questions.

The ST-500 light bulbs are not proprietary to this tank, company or brand. They are standard compact fluorescent bulbs that can be found in a variety of places. The back of the hood has an opening for wires, hoses and airlines to be run through. The hood may accept the HOB filter but it depends on the dimensions of your particular model.
