I suppose you've considered modifying the angle and direction of light?
Maybe play around with a mirror positioned inside the hood somehow to focus
your light, of whatever cost and wattage, where it will do the most good.
Maybe thin the top growth a bit over the glosso area only? Problem is: with
that much light you'll almost have to trim twice a day. Different, less dense
background plants or rearrange the plants maybe?
Remember, glosso will ramble, smother and climb over itself if not trimmed
enough leading to a viscious cycle of higher and higher growth. Make sure
it's the light that's really the problem.
If it is, perhaps a little halogen spot for the glosso in front?
Just a thought, because with 8 watts per gallon and only ten gallons of
buffer -- things could go real wrong real quick...
