lighting ?
    #2847953 - 07/01/04 05:49 PM (12 years, 5 months ago)

afoaf wants to use a 2 foot or so flourescent tube light in the terrarium. should afoaf look for "cool white" or "soft white" or what? i know there should be a blue spectrum on the light but which type of floro has the best?

the lighting cycle is set on a timer for 1.5 hours spread out two times a day and then 1 hour in between. this is a total of 4 hours of light...is this enough? also, can the floro tube be placed directly on the chamber's plastic lid (diffused light) or will it get too hot and melt it?

cool white provides a good blue light.warm white provides more red than blue.
