    Check again - the 13 watt kits are for small tanks...

    They only measure 8" x 3" x 1.5". How small were you looking for?

    Well, isn't 13 watts too little?

    High wattage compact fluorescent screw in bulb (preferrably 6500K, but you can find more wattage cheaper if you don't worry about temperature) - $5-10

    Clamp light with reflector - $5-7

    Timer - $5

    Seriously... you don't need to go overboard. The plant will grow.

    If you can get prices close to this - this will work for you.

    Lighting intensity is not linear w/ distance - I believe that it is exponential. Translation: a small decrease in plant to light distance is a large increase in light for the plant.

    Good luck.

    I'm sorry if this is bothering you. This is my first time with any CP's, and I want to be absolutely perfect in its conditions. Well, I guess it's practically impossible to perfectly replicate a CP's environment(especially D. capensis), but still.
