George, thanks for the information.  I considered the shop lights, but the
ones I have seen would require a hood, and that puts me back in the
carpentry quandary again.  I presently have six strip lights sitting on top
of a glass canopy.  For feeding and maintainance, I just remove one of the
strip lights and sit it onto one of the back lights - it is no problem.

I have either an 18" or 20" high, 110g and I am using twelve triton 15w
tubes with mylar reflectors.  I have been told that 1.6w/g was not enough
and thought that was the reason for the slow growth. If you are having
success with that ratio, then it must be something else I am doing wrong, or
I am just impatient.
