    T5 HO's, Sunblaster brand. They work very well, and are cool, just compounds with the warm conditions in my house.

    do you know how hot your house is? Mine gets up to 79 during the day. Hopefully the t5hos wont heat it up to much. I am sure that the combination of fans and humidifier will keep it cool during the day. Of course the ac would go on when it gets to warm.

    I think I will go with the 2' lights. 4' would pretty much take up the entire ceiling and heat it up a lot.

    Yeah, you should be fine, my house is 80-90 degrees during the summer, way cooler during winter.

    More fans on lower speed is better than fewer fans on higher speed, IMO. A nice, gentle breeze throughout is much better than a strong wind in one area, and a deadzone in another. XD

    You might be able to get away with humidifying 216 cubic feet with a single humidifier, but I don't know. I believe mass uses 2 of 'em, maybe more. You might want to consider a bucket humidifier, though, because even if one normal one can attain that kind of humidity, I can almost guarantee you'll be filling it every day which becomes a real chore over time.

    Mmm, and I'd really go with the 4' fixture. Cheaper over time and more light coverage. If you're worried about it heating the enclosure, relocate the ballast. Simple wiring procedure.
