Question about Giesemann bulb placement


I have a Sunlight Supply Tek Light 4 x54W above my 90 gallon....I am wondering about bulb placement....am I better off to go with a Giesemann Aquaflora on the two outside slots, and powerchrome on the two inner ones....or alternate them? Not sure if I am ready to use all 4 slots yet, but wanted some input

I do not think that will make any difference, with the possible exception of how it looks to you.
On TEK, 1 switch controls 2 outside bulbs, another switch controls two inside bulbs. If you are thinking of not using all 4 bulbs, then place your bulbs accordingly.

To me, the Aquaflora looks better behind the 6000 K bulb. The Aquaflora is pinkish.
