    Nice. T5's are sexy. How's the heat? How many bulbs are in that fixture? Four? Six? I think you need more plants, now.

    Very nice! How long is your rack? I was actually looking for something similar, but I could only find 36" long ones. I needed 48" so the basic shop lights would fit; I'm now the proud owner of a second five tear 48" long rack.

    For the future, you may want to consider adding mylar on at least the back side of the shelf (three sides would be better). I have seen a MAJOR improvement in my plants since adding mylar. Even with those sexy t5's, why waste the light if you can reflect most of it back?

    Where do we go when we just don't know,
    And how do we relight the flame when it's cold?
    Why do we dream when our thoughts mean nothing,
    And when will we learn to control?

    Yeah those T5's are nice. I have a single T5 replaced by a double bulb T8 fixture, but I trying to find out what to do with the T5 now.
    I regret little to nothing!

    you should add some reflective material to the back and sides of your terrarium, you are loosing a lot of light to the wall!
