I think it's the Tim Allen thing. Just too much fun pushing stuff to the limit. Reminds me of the home-made bombs we made when we were kids.. er, never mind. Anyhoo, Home Depot has the baby you're talking about, a GE-432 MAX that's a 4-F32T8 for $27.87. What's really cool about your thread is I can now look at a shop light that says "2x32 T12" and realize that you can put T8's in there and replace the ballast with an electronic one. They have several 4-ft shop lights, but the reflectors are no more then dust hoods, although there was one called the Diamond-Back from Lithonia Lighting that looked pretty good ($24.95). So for roughly $54 I can have lighting for a 4-foot tank.... hmmm... that sofa's gotta go.
