I need lighting advice, I went out to Lowes and got two clamp lamps and 2 26watt 6500 CFLS, screwed some wood onto the back of the stand and set everything up, I just need some help now, first, will evaporation affect the bulbs? Second, I'm deciding whether or not I should have two, I think two, but my dad said one, attached are some pictures of the tank with lighting under two and under one.
With two

and with one

I'm trying to grow glosso and some dwarf hairgrass, still unsure what in the back, but I know these two plants need relatively high light along with co2 (DIY), another thing my dad suggested was replacing the 26 watt lights with 20 watt or 13 watt ones, opinions?
