I agree. Actually, that's pretty close to the light. About right for the Sophronitis (don't think it needs any more intensity than that). The Den and the Eria may benefit from a little more distance (and therefore a bit lower intensity) One of the advantages of the egg-crate scheme is that it makes it easy to fine-tune this.
