40 watts isn't enough

I know a single 40 watt fluorescent bulb isn't enough light but I got some small Green Mushrooms that look like they are doing OK i hope.... Check it out.....

Mushrooms dont need a whole lot of light but the downside is that they wont grow and reproduce like they should in low light. They almost look like blue or purple mushrooms like I have here.

I personally think mushrooms do good with VHO lighting. But that`s solely my opinion only. I`ve seen them in all types of lighting. You can get the whole picture of them if you view my tank in my sig.
