Lighting for SPS is mostly moderate to high. I would consider 3watts/gal of T5 light on the low end. SPS is not a good choice for this type of lighting.
Some people are like slinkies...they serve no real purpose yet can still bring a smile to your face when you push them down the stairs!:p
Have a great day! Brian

I agree that your lighting is not sufficient for SPS. Mine isnt either. I just learn to deal with it.
