Metal Halide Light
A friend received a few metal halide lights... just need to plug them in and
they work.. not in a pendant.. more like a shop light with a swival head?..
anyways it's a 250 watt MH and I was thinking of replacing my flourscent
lighting over my 66 gallon tank with this metal halide light.. here's the
problem... my tank's on a cabinet and the tank's 24" tall.. so the top of
the tank is 5'5" .... I don't want to mount or hang the lights point
straight down because if I sit down to look at the tank I don't really like
to have the MH lights shine above me.. but I was thinking of say mounting
the lights 1/2 feet in front/directly above the tank and angling (less than
45 degrees) towards the tank surface.. would there be sufficient light for
my plants in the back? any comments or suggestions?
