    Unhappy

    Please use the following link and tell me what you think of these bulbs for a CP terrarium. http://catalog2.panasonic.com/webapp....FA23E50 It puts out 5000K light at the equivalent of a 90 watt incandescent. I think 2 bulbs would probably suffice in a tank that is 20"x10". Any more and I would need a welders mask to view my plants.Thoughts?

    Question

    I think it has its advantages. The 5000k is the same as a GE chroma50 that I use. The chroma's CRI is a tad higher, but more importantly, the bulb you pointed out has higher initial lumens (1400 compared to 875). [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif[/img]

    My two cents.

    Personally Id be woried about the heat output from two of those over a 10 gallon tank.
    Theres no question as to whether they will adequately light the space.
    Peace
