    Then I say go with compact flourescents. You can get them at any Home Depot or Lowe's for pretty cheap (you can buy a pack of four 23 watt bulbs for around 10 dollars).

    If you go with a 5 gallon tank, one of those 23 watt (equivalent to 100 watts of light) will do the trick, and for a 10 gallon two of those bulbs will work great. You can also buy a couple of those work light clamp fixtures to put the bulbs in. They go for about 5 bucks a piece at Home Depot or Lowe's.

    Also, I doubt you're going to need a fogger, unless you're growing certain types of Nepenthes. What kind of CPs do you plan on growing in your tank?

    You definitely won't need a fogger for what you're growing. Just make sure you have plenty of light, air circulation and distilled water and you'll be fine.

    Like I mentioned before, you should check out my website (Mitch's Carnivores) for information on growing CPs (especially sundews, which I grow a lot of).

    Bigger is better when it comes to lights. You should be considering nothing under 42W CFL bulbs, IMO. If you choose to use the 42W bulbs, I'd use 2 of them.

    I have 2 85W bulbs over my terrarium.
