    Yeah swap out the T8 for a T12. Warm white is fine, Capensis will do fine in water trays and VFT's will not. I dont know about the others but if all your plants are in a terrarium you may need to put a fan in or leave it open to allow air flow. Hope that helps.

    All right, thanks CopcarFC, i will get a tray for the 2 capensis, abouth air circulation, i leave the terrarium 3 or 2cm open and im getting a computer fan, but last one i put stop working, lol maybe to much water i will put one over the terrarium, i hope at that way theres just a litle air moving and the fan still working, great i will get another T12, See ya.

    I dont think you need to cover your terrarium at all, most of your plants dont really need high humidity. So instead of hooking up a fan you might be able to get away with opening it up.
