I'm looking to get a 16 inch long light hood. It doesn't matter really how wide. I've been looking all over and can't find one. Does anyone know where I could get one

I have a 16" t8 strip fixture I got off of Amazon.com. Of course, the actual fixture is more like 18.5" long. If you are looking for the actual fixture to be 16", you won't find it. Probably need to be a custom one then.

Depending on your requirements.

I just posted this in the other light thread-

You may be able to use something like

This Details found HERE.
Dimensions Small- 7.8 x 17.7 x 3.5 inches (2 bulb; upto 26w each socket)
Dimensions Mini- 5.9 x 11.8 x 3.5 inches (1 bulb; upto 26w)
Dimensions Nano- 8 x 3.5 x 5.9 inches (1 bulb; up to 26w)

or

This
Dimensions- 18.3 x 5 x 4 inches

With either of them, just make sure you keep the glass cover over the tank as these are not waterproof/resistant.

Exo Terra also has a dual fluorescent fixture but is only 14wx2. Link
Dimensions Small- 17.7 x 3.5 x 7.8 inches (2 bulbs (15inch); upto 14w each)


Looks like the Exo Terra MinI might be a good option as it allows some customizing of wattage of bulb and stay within the dimensions. It looks to be black but painting a brown that matches may help.

Might help if the wattages in the 16" fixtures aren't enough.
