    Do you mean light bulb for your 24" fixture in high lumens? Well, the highest lumens bulb for 24" is T5, which is 2000 lumens, but it won't fit your T12 (or T8) fixture. For T12, 975 lumens from 24" is pretty high already, it can't go any higher.

    I just found a single 54'in T5 fixture with bulb included for $35.95 emiting 5100 lumens!!!
    The same fixture in 24' in width emits 2280.

    I am adding the 54'in to my current setup.
