HMMM...godd question there. You may want to ask some of the plant experts that are so good with the lighting thing.

I would think since the light is above both tanks they would both get the full 40 watts.

40 watts each, the power of the fluro isn't divided in the middle, :P
it runs the full length of the tube, u could have 4 X 1ft tanks and they'd still be getting 40w each
i'd say go with double for the extra light, but limit ur light on time to say 7-8 hrs a day

if it a 37w light it will be 37w each, if it's 40 w light they will get 40 watts each..i'd get 1 x40w light, u can get 2x 25w but then the output will still be 25watts but just over a larger area.. do u understand what I mean?
