    If this is for a lowland tank, how can the lights you are using be too warm? Also, these are cool whites that are putting out this much heat? Are your plants too close to the lights?

    Cheers,

    It's mainly the dews, and no they are not to close to the light. They aren't really warm, but they tend to dry the tank alot, I have the humidity, around 70-85%. They should be getting plenty of water, as I have most of the plants on the tray method letting the trays dry before watering again.

    Regarding lighting, I was wondering, since I've been using lights for growing, coral reef tank, etc. I thought that the warm white were called "warm" because of the red hue, and the cool because of "blue" wavelengths and combining them had the effect of a balanced dose of the various wavelengths.

    I was not aware that the Warm and Cool flourescent tubes were different in temperature.

    I plan on adding a spray painted plexi glass cover with a small 12 volt DC computer 2 inch fan and put it on a dimmer so I can adjust the ventilation. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smilie4.gif[/img]
