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...
