You are most likely going to need CO2 with that fixture mounted as designed. They have excellent reflectors.
Hmm. I guess I could get another light fixture ... That one seemed petty straight forward and looked nice. I also liked how it could link up to more eventually. I had read elsewhere on here that a low tech setup had success running the light for like four or five hours on the morning and again for four or five at night ...

I am tempted to look into CO2 setups, to be honest ... But was going to wait until I had some early success. Heh.
