    OR, I could use 2 20 watts, and add two 26 watt CF's. I think that would be better. Arrg, the only thing is that the only 2 foot bulbs they have are T12.

    Yes that would be better. They make T8's and T5's.

    A little aluminum foil and some tape will do wonders too speaking from experience.

    The ones at Home Depot and Lowes only seem to come in T12's. Are they really that bad?

    Pyro, yeah, I use alluminum on all my tanks, and it works great.

    They aren't as efficient. I use them on a VHO ballast. They don't last as long when overdriven but BOY are they bright!

    Ok, I see. Does "not as effecient" mean that they're not as good for the plants as T8?

    Nope. They aren't that great. They are more efficient because they are smaller,have higher lumens per watt output, and consume less power.

    T8's only run on a electronic ballast (that in itself is more efficient.)

    Hmm, ok. It's just the only ballasts they sell are for T12 bulbs, at least ballasts meant to hold 40 watt 2' bulbs.
