A really good example of "Literature on the Web" for ODNO power consumption and light.


Note that 4XODNO T8 measured at 1.7X energy and 2.1X light!

On the topic of lighting, I have been experimenting (thanks to an AGA member letting me know that I only had medium lighting!) with ODNO light (Over-Driven Normal Ouptut).

That is basically a DIY fluorescent light set-up where you cram the energy needed for 2 (or 3, or 4)tubes into 1. More output for less space. There is a risk as with any DIY, but if you are a tad electrically inclined, it is worth the time and effort. I got an extra 80-90 Watts over my 55-gal for $30 tops, and it's been going on for the past 6 months. Literature is out there on the Web.

Thankyou--that's good to know!  I was fretting a bit about spending
money on lights.  Not just now, when things are tight for everybody!
