    terrarium lighting

    compact fluorescent or power compact?

    Which should I purchase for use as supplemental light inside a standing English terrarium? The terrarium sits in a south window and is 19" x 19" x 23" high with metal frame and unremovable top (the doors are on the front).
    I have been looking at 12" PC fixtures as well as compact fluorecsents
    I am concerned about heat output as well as lumen output. I already understand that actinic bulbs are useless.
    I already have a few sources, but any ideas on a good source for the fixture?

    Any help would be, errr, helpful.

    PC without a doubt !

    coralife prefabbed fixures are nice, and expensive, or ahsupply.com for retrofits.

    I know the PC produce more lumens, but the CF cost much less. DO they (CF) produce significantly more heat?

    I have been eyeing Current's satellite 12" single or double light fixtures. Does coralife have a 12" or 18" fixture?
