Wasserpest, my tank is 36" long * 24" wide * 24" deep. Inside measurement of the canopy under the mirror polished aluminum relector is 9" front to back and 35.5 side to side. Replacing the canopy is not an option.
The 4 current 20 watt bulbs are placed roughly like this:
I was thinking that I could relocate everything and thus squeeze in 2 more 20 watt T12 bulbs (adding 40 watts) but this would have the bulbs so tight they'd be touching each other, so that won't work. Maybe just OD them? Or maybe T8s or T5s?
I plan on sticking with low light plants but feel they could benefit from a bit more light.
