I know I'm not up for paying for Tunze products. And I realize that for what
I'm looking for the H.O.T. magnum produces enough current flow. I've got it
set up so that the return pipe on is is running like a fast-flowing spigot
into the back of the tank. Like I said, I'm not looking for whitewater
rapids, so this is actually good current flow to my mind.

I also have to look up peak photosynthetic rates at various spectra for
aquatic plant systems' photopigments, esp. those using chlorophyll _c_ .
Most photopigments have peak reactions somewhere between 400 and 470 nm,
with the orange/red spectra being secondary peaks utilized by chlorophylls
_a_ and _b_ in terrestrial systems. But, I want to narrow down who does
