Thanks a lot Im thinking of replacing the top screen with plexi glass And place two t5s on it do you think that will work? and how many inches you think that is to the t5 to the bottom of the tank?
what are the plants you will put into your exo?
all of my collection Ill raise smaller ones with egg crates I plan on putting my entire collection in there exp for my ultra highlanders
For example, you cannot grow a nepenthes with a heliamphora, because if you provide enough light to your helis, your nep will burn. Thats why i need to know your plants. But you can always raise your heli near the top, by the time your neps are lower. You can down the T5s very close to the top glasse.
But its a very general advise, others tf members will add more information!
Maiden So I will put heli higher and neps lower. and a acrylic top

i grow my helis and neps together and the helis are lower than many of the neps. they just dont show their best color this way but it can certainly be done
but can a tank with this list be realistic ? http://imageshack.us/a/img547/8146/p1010086s.jpg

all opinions appreciated
Its not impossible, but some of your plants will not thrive. For example, if you provide the right lighting for your ampularia(s), your heli will be green. As i and mylesg said, you can raise up your heli near the top, and put the neps lower in the terra.
Another thing, some of your neps are lowlanders, and you want to put them with many species of heliamphora. Both genus need very differents temperatures. And your helis need a good temps drop at night, this will put your lowlanders into troubles.
By the way, you have a very cool heliamphora collection! Im looking for buying a minor burgundy-black since 1 year! LoL i think under my lighting setup, the purple color can be amazing.
I want to try someday
This is a h.minor under my lighting setup

How far can light be from neps or helis and seedlings 18 inches 24 inches 10 inches
For me, you should grow your heliamphora as close as you can of the T5, a inch or 2, but the temps have to be 26C or less the day, and 12C to 17C at night. With good ventilation/misting.
And put your neps on the bottom of the terra. Your lowlanders need 26-30C+ the day, and 20-22C at night.
With no misting.
All this into RH85%.
