I have 2 tanks 18x10x10, which are currently using as a cory grow on tank. I want to plant the up and use them for 2 male betta's I have, now the tanks are basic, just glass with a condensation lid and a plain flexible black plastic lid.

No what are the realistic options for lighting that doesn't include a hood for an 18" tank, will be pretty low tech. no co2 injection but will ferts dose and liquid carbon

Cheers

Lighting a non-hooded tank is going to be tricky and a luminary is going to be expensive and over kill if you want low-tech/light.

The half drain pipe idea isn't all that bad, line it with foil as a makeshift reflector, or you could just use a reflector and hand it above the tank somehow, they aren't expensive.
