    Nice setup Jim.

    To get them warmer, how about one of those heating pads for your back placed under the water tray with a timer? Or maybe even placing the aquarium heater into the tray.

    Has anyone really been far even as decided to use even go want to do look more like?

    The tray is plastic and shallow. I'd do it, but am concerned that the heat from the heater may damage the tray or that it may evaporate too quickly. Whaddya think?

    I use some of the "warmer" colored CFL's for my LL setup,

    their hotter than the cool bulbs, and definitely hotter the tube set up.

    if you were to put one of those in there, you'd see a definite heat increase...

    it also may give you a nighttime drop, so if it was an overall heat increase i guess it wouldnt be a great solution... just a thought

    Here's a thread that show's how I rig up my CFL's in order to save money...
    since you have lights already going you wouldnt need this many and you could drop them further into the tank obviously to adjust the heat amount... it gives me a great daytime to nighttime drop becuase the heat pickup can be large.

    just make sure you dont buy the daylight bulbs, while they put out more lumens they put off less heat so if heat is the goal... the warmest color you can get will be hottest
