I have these two (total of 6 bulbs- 4 white and 2 blue):
1. 36" Nova Extreme 4 x 39 Watt High Output HO
T5 Lighting Fixture. Performance driven electronic ballast, german parabolic reflector, integrated fan cools both ballast and lamps. 2 x 39 Watt Daylight 10,000K and 2 x 39 Watt Actinic T5 Slimpaq HO
Lamps for 156 total watts. Two independent circuits with 6 ft. grounded power cords for independent control. Separate control for moon lights. Dimensions: 36" x 7.25" x 2.5". Model 1121.
2. Two 39 Watt SlimPaq 10K , Individually contoured reflectors, Plastic mounting legs, Performance driven electronic ballast. No independent control over 10K and Actinic lamps.
They are placed directly over the glass panels. I would like to know if I should replace item 2 with item 1 giving me 8 bulbs total? I love the glistering bright look at the LFS
but I am concerned about the heat generated in the enclosed hood. DP
