    Yes, put at least four total tubes on top. Your plants will be happy. Also, do what people said here and put some reflective material on the sides. Use tinfoil if you have nothing else, and just tape it to the back and sides. This will help a lot, too.

    heyaaaaa, i just got myself one of those spiral fluorecent bulbs!! This thing is putting out 2600 lumens (they say 150 watts of light) out of 42W of energy. Its pretty dang bright too. Im hoping this will do the job but i still need to make a set up for it to sit on top of the tank somehow..

    I have two of those 42 watt bulbs on one of my 10 gallons and they put out a crazy amount of light. Glad to hear that your sundews are liking it!

    LLeopardGGecko, if you are using 2 of those bulbs on a 10gal would it be safe to use 3 of them on a 20gal?

    Takahashi, thats awsome to here that your plants are doing much better since you added more light.. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img] How much did this type of bulb run in the store?
