    Are you sure you have NEW bulbs, at least 0.5 watts per gallon? This really looks like weak bulbs.

    2 more days.

    ok tommorow i will buy new bulbs
    there is bulbs that i trust that there wattage is really true and not only bare advertisment
    but the one of them is 23 watt philips brand
    so can i use 4 bulbs of them ?
    are they going to be ok because these are the maximum wattage i can find in my market
