    Well thank you dionae, that is indeed a compliment.

    FWIW, the next to last image if one of the plants on the lower 4 bulb T8 rack, GE Chroma 50 bulbs in it.
    Giesemann's in the top 4 bulb T5 rack.

    Jeff, I use Giesemann Aquaflora and Midday bulbs in my T5 rack. In my T8 rack I use GE Chroma 50's (Sunshine) bulbs

    (The Chroma 50's are similar to the Giesemann Middays, 5000k w/high CRI)

    I have no specific knowledge of the terra neon.... can you send a link to their spectral curve?

    Thanks Jon,

    I had some concern going from a 6 bulb down to a 4 bulb, while at the same time increasing distance to bulbs by a considerable margin. They went from less then two inches for the tallest helis to now 8 or more inches.
    Early indications are that I will still have decent color, maybe not as good.... but respectable still yet.
    The increased clearance sure does make feeding the pitchers easier as well.
    Ill give it 6 months and if the decrease is too dramatic Ill do what it takes to get the 6 bulb back in operation.

    I think one advantage I do have, is now my bulbs can run much hotter. So this is making up some of the ground lost in the other two variables.
