Alright thanks I will. My old bulb was covered in creep but still was going strong and didn't erupt in flames LOL. I have seen lights over open top tanks thy were COVERED in creep and still worked. This would be better than the other way for growth though correct?

it should be but the brightness isnt really a concern . its the full coverage of the screen . try it out and if you have bare spots then you know you need more. i have 4 10inch lamps on my 18 by 12 screen

Alright will do. Thanks forte help. The very first part of the slot doesn't really trickle very much water so I will try to focus the light to the majority of the screen which does.

no problem. it takes some tinkering with the angle and ties at times. I personally had to make like 5 slot pipes before i got one that i was happy with. Just make small daily adjustments as needed to get it where it needs to be
