wow! this set-up is a great idea! i've been researching alot recently how to get better bulbs in my 20gallon tall tank but can't even find a a strip that fits and holds bulbs better than 18" t8 15W. my plants are surviving right now but i would love to see them flourish! how has the double light fixture been going so far? i may be attempting to follow your brilliance within the next couple days if i can find the supplies...

well the lights are working great. Right now i just have 2 java fern in the tank and they dont seem to be growing much sadly. IDK im new at this whole planted tank thing and havent spent much time or money on it. Hopefully over winter break i can find some time to make the tank a nice planted.
