Re: [APD] Brown algae

I do the same thing. I was talking to someone at the AGA convention a  few 
years ago, and he said that the major loss in fluorescents is in the first  six 
months, and that after that, the output stays pretty steady at about half  the 
original, for a long time.  Rather than replacing after six months, I  just 
double up on my old bulbs, and it works pretty well.
