This has not been my observations. I thought he's pretty much on target
for his larger tanks, and actually on the high side for the smaller
tanks. See Erik's summary at
http://www.thekrib.com/Plants/Tech/Lighting/light-a.gif . But I guess it
all depends on what YOUR "watt per gallon rule" is. Mine is 1 to 4 W/gal,
inversely proportional to tank size, with the average at 2 W/g.
