    That would depend on what kind of setup you have. Are you planning on growing your plants in a terrarium? What size tank would you be using? What kind of plants are you planning on growing?

    If you aren't going for a huge setup (i.e. 50 gallon tank or something like that) then you'll be better off using compact flourescent bulbs. If you want to know more about using compact flourescent bulbs, feel free to visit my website. I use them almost exclusively on my terrariums and they work great.

    Here's my website: Mitch's Carnivores

    Be sure to check out the "Terrariums" and "Care and Cultivation" sections. Hopefully you'll find what you need in there [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]

    That would be fine. Will you be using this light over a terrarium? And if so, what size tank?

    For a smaller size growing area that would work great, but if your tank is pretty big, getting two of those might not be a bad idea.

    if i were in your position i'd splurge on some Power Compacts and if you add a little bit of water to the bottom of the terrarium you probably wont even need a fogger unless you live in the desert or someplace like that.


    i'm in the school of thought that says more is better, as long as spectrum is right and up to a point. i guess i learned that in my reefing days.
