    Microfluorescent T4 Light Fixtures?

    I just bought 2x 20 W 21" actinic T4 bulbs.http://www.pegasusassociates.com/Mic...rescentT4.html.
    They are quite good looking,sleek and under my budget and they don't produce as much heat as my CFLs.Do you guys think that they are good enough for ATS tanks ?

    As long as you remove the plastic cover, keep the bulbs within 2" of the screen, and have the required watts per gallon:

    0.5 watts per gallon minimum.
    1.0 watts per gallon for HIGH filtering.
