    These sort of LEDs concern me, with the LEDs I'm using if I put 30W of them in that small of a space.....I think it would catch fire...or would be too bright to grow anything under.

    Please keep us informed as to how they perform.

    Since I've only used CREE LEDs I can only recommend them, so here is a kit I've been using that you can start out with for under $50 easily. The only other items you need are a heatsink and lenses. Just make sure to tell them to swap out the blue LEDs with the color(s) of your choice.

    Does anybody know if there's a hood out there that's only a foot long? My terrarium is about 11 inches long and 8 1/2 inches deep at its widest point. I could fit 2 fluorescent tubes over it (3 or 4 if they're the skinny kind), but I don't want to waste space the long way. I would prefer not to have to make a custom hood because I don't have the know-how to wire it so I can safely plug it into the wall.
