    i got my lights in today
    3 sets of hamilton 250w pendants with hamilton 20k bulbs for 270 shipped, :)  but was wondering how far away from water should i place them or do you just experiment?  they have acrylic lenses on them.  oh and the insides are just white, not made of reflective material.  that ok?

    I think common wisdom says 18" you want to start high and come down since you changing from less intense light. The white reflector is OK, but like anything else, there is better. You will just have to see how your colors and growth are.

    mike had mentioned to me bout possibly stripping the paint off the inside and polishing it. i had also thought of getting skylight tubing and bending it to fit the insides as well
