    I'd love to see that light fixture!

    Just one cautionary note: your terrarium may quickly overheat with that many compact fluorescents over it, especially if you cover the terrarium. Just something to look out for....

    An easy way to fix the heating problem you will face would be to suspend the lights farther away from the terraruim. You have enough light to bring back the fixture quite a ways.

    not to worry!
    they are CFLs so they barely heat up after whole day of work.
    i'll try to post pics today.

    I use a similar CFL set-up for my smaller CP tank - 4 20W CFL attached to a piece of wood that makes up the hood. They work wonders on the plants, especially my Drosera and Pinguicula, which are finally starting to colour up nicely. I agree with what you say about the lack of heat build-up, since I barely get any and the lights sit directly on my tank.
    We want pics!

    As for posting images, copy the whole URL of your image (e.g. http://.....jpg), click on the "Image" tab above, paste the URL, and click OK. That simple. Just be careful with where you want the image to appear, as it will always go down to the last line.

    Cheers

    Yes, my adelae already started a new leaf after just one day of such treatment (usually takes 3 after a new leaf unfolded).
    Tell me where can up the pics, so I could link them to http and I will. I remember there was some web site that did that...
