 My  tank  is  a  15g  (2ft*1ft*1ft)  with  1.5"  sand  substrate.  
 
 The  flora  are  Amazon  Swords  and  Cabomba  (Fanwort)  with  DIY  CO2  and  root  tabs  for  the  swords.
 
 Now,  I  just  got  a  new  Philips  36W  PL-L  (6500k  2900  lumens  @  78m/W).
 
 Does  my  lighting  fall  into  low  or  medium?  
 
 According  to  the  W/G  method,  it  has  2.4  W/G  and  according  to  Lumen/sq.in  rule  (from  here:  http://fotohobbist.com/blog/lighting-for-planted-aquariums-watts-per-gallon-lsi-lumen-lux-what/)  it  is  10  lumens/sq.inch.

 Right  now,  I  don't  have  a  reflector.  But,  the  hood  is  completely  white  inside  and  I'm  planning  to  tin  foil  the  inside  surface  of  the  hood  and  move  the  ballast  to  the  outside  of  the  hood.
