I decided to try T2s in the 2 24" fixtures over my 55. I'm not very satisfied with the result. The fixtures I purchased took more DIYing than I expected to fit into my canopies and did not come with any reflectors. I know there is a science to the reflectors, but I am not up on that at all and not inclined to put much more DIY effort into this :-( other than maybe painting the inside of the canopies. Would the TEK II reflectors for T5s help or be a waste of money?

reflectors, such as the TEK ones, will greatly increase the output of your lights. i've got individual reflectors on my T5 lamps, and i get a lot of light out of my DIY canopy.

you can go with just painting the inside of your canopy, you do lose light to absorption.
