    I figured that was the case; but, I didn't know with your new setup if you were going to try and do some temperature drops.

    Neg. All the best plants are lowlands anyway
    Well...the higher humidity does drop the temps a little, which I am not happy about. I may get a heater, but I'm not too sure. If they start looking worse than they already do, or start shriveling or something, I'll go buy a heater.

    BTW, the pics work now. I don't know if you changed anything, but I can see them now.

    And nice job at that. I am partial to windowsills myself, but if I had such a poor environment, I would probably do the same thing.

    Thanks vraev. Speaking of the tank, I'm having some problems w/ the light. Maybe someone can help?

    The light fixture has a button switch on the back of it. It sticks out the same distance regardless of if the light is on or not. When I turn it on, then it is switched off electrically (i.e. not at the switch. I mean like when the timer goes off), it will not go back on again until it is turned on manually. If the switch is in the "on" position (even though there isn't really one I guess), but not actually on, the light will not come on if a timer clicks on to complete the circuit. Does this make sense?

    Can anyone help me figure out how to get around this? I want the light to be able to come on via a timer. I'm way too stupid to start rewiring unless someone gives me a foolproof guide on how to bypass the switch. I can take a pic of the electronics portion of the light tomorrow. But it'd have to be a reallllllllllllllly easy guide, or else I'll electrocute myself.

    That sounds like an old fixture. Older light fixtures have to be 'held' to start, same way you start a car.

    I doubt you can use this fixture to for your setup unless you want to wake them up every morning.

    Nor would rewire it to always be 'pushing' the button. I'm not sure what would happen, but I'm pretty sure it'd be the same result of you keeping the key turned while starting the car.

    Yeah it is a really old fixture. I guess I'll just have to buy a new one...
    UGH! Anywhere to find a cheap one?

    Walmart I would guess to be the cheapest, $10 for the fixture and what ever kind of light ya want.
