Very good idea. Another thing that might help would be to connect all of the tubes together with a piece of bare electrical wire. Just run it around each wire so that they all are in touch with the wire.
I am going to assume that you also grounded all of the lights together with the green ground wire, and that you have this going to the outlet? If not, I would highly recommend you do this, both for more consistent start-up and for safety reasons.
