I would expect many on the list would vote for the "write-in" candidate in
your election: "Power Compacts". I use them in a suspended canopy (48").

Any other drawbacks?
In my experience, I think I lose more CO2 with an open top than I would with
a cover of some kind. I believe this strongly enough that I am planning to
invest in a covering sheet of some type of plastic (I'll check the archives
to refresh my memory of a recent discussion regarding which types are best).
I hope that helps at least a bit.
