Obviously the extra 3" in the height of your tank will cause lower readings. Hope this helps!
I read your thread. Very helpful thank you. For my current setup according to your measurements one fixture should be sufficient. To bad it doesn't have a little more power. Down the road of I keep.more demanding plants in this tank I'm afraid the one fixture wont be enough.
