    I like having these types of lights around just in case I have to rig something last minute, but I probably wouldn't call them any more than supplemental (compared to something like a T5 fixture) unless you have a lot of them.

    My very first set up was a couple of clamp lights with CFLs over a 10 gallon. It worked for a while, but I'd never go back to that lighting unless I had to...

    Quick update, I came home to Stl for the weekend, my mom gave me the lamp. It currently has a Philips Eco Vantage Halogen bulb (1350 lumens). Thoughts on how to best use this?

    Your going to need a different bulb...halogens don't work well on plants....you need a compact fluorescent
