    I already ordered a single one and am looking to see where I might be able to squeeze in a second one that's also a single but it's still going to use two outlets.

    I'm so glad I got that two foot T5. I got it today and I'm thrilled! The window is way better already. Check this out.

    I put some tin foil on that piece of wood for more reflection. Haha, my poor budgies and cockatiels are lit up at night.

    And a pulled out shot. I'll be ordering another one once I save up again. Perhaps I'll even put two on the sides. They have a place you can hook several of them together like Christmas lights. I'm thrilled. I'm very impressed with T5's. First time. Notice the Easter Peep hanging down in the top center.

    you could side mount a light on each side, off of the cabinets.

    Not to go too crazy with your kitchen look, but you could line the sides of the cabinets with something reflective like aluminum as well to try to eek out a bit more light for the plants.

    boxofrain, yeah that's one thing I was considering.

    zlookup, Those cabinets are so ugly that perhaps a little silver on them might be an improvement hehe. I am going to get a roll of that reflective flim from the greenhouse place I got the light. I want to line one of my tanks with it and can use the extra for the cabinets.
