AH Supply, too much light, was Re: Dust Algae
<<When I set up my 90, I did the math and installed 3 - 96 watt AH Supply CF
lamps in order to get 3 watts per gallon. Then I read that these lights are
160% efficient compared to the older lamps that the 3 watt rule is based on.
A combination of more efficient lamp and better reflector design. I turned
off one of the lamps and that reduced a lot of algae troubles.>>
Okay, technical question: If you've got a 2x36 setup (from AH Supply), can you simply disconnect one of the bulbs or will it hurt the ballast to be running just the one?
