    I just got this guy. It comes with four 6500k lights, I should probably grab two 3000k to switch out? Or two 4200k? And thanks for all of the responses! Part of the problem was they were in a much smaller tank, and the T8 was putting out a ton of heat. 85+ degree temperature averages. I thought the distance was the problem, and too much light, now I just realize I need less heat and even more light. And the grow bulb is leftover from my old setup. I also surrounded all of the sides with tinfoil, which will work for now until I can afford the better stuff (Blanking on the name).

    One last question if you don't mind! I have heard mixed reviews about whether a small fan and/or air circulation is needed? Or stagnant air is okay? I am having no mold issues or anything, and I do take the top off 1-2x per week and completely fan out the air and re-humidify it so not to have those problems. But I've seen some super nice setups with fans and such.

    Thank you ! ! !

You're lucky to live within a reasonable driving distance of a wonderful CP nursery. And don't forget the Bay Area Carnivorous Plant Society meetings. There are a few growers in the San Jose Area.

    Welcome to TerraForums.
    I put them on a large bowl. And I had no idea about the meetings! Looking them up right now. I feel very welcomed, thanks!
