Not enough par? The problem I have with your suggestion is that is pretty darn ugly and this is in a room where other people have to look at the tank and will freak if I put that on it.
Three of those would cost over $100. But, I suspect it would work for low light. Those don't have effective reflectors, as far as I can tell. http://www.petsmart.com/product/inde...ductId=3569157 can be made to look very good by hanging them from a single bent conduit hanger bar.
