types of light
    #3001945 - 08/13/04 07:58 PM (12 years, 9 months ago)

I am now "stealthing" my setup because i am moving into an apartment with a paranoid roomate who demands i keep growing hush hush. I made a setup with a large footlocker and wanted to put a light fixture in the lid. I was wondering, are flourecent lights the only "cool" lights? I didnt want to get a huge flourecent because the size is unnecessary. Are there any other options? even if i do get it cool enough, would light that close be harmful? P.S. I am correct in saying that a normal white light would fry the terrarium, right??

get a fish tank hood lamp... i use a 20,000k light from a 10 gallon tank hoodlamp(k is the measurement of projectability of light, not how bright it is:::this is usually misunderstood) it appears just as bright as a normal flourescent light, but it peaks on the spectrun at blue-green at 400 on the spectrum, at about 400. that light is used for coral reef tanks, but it is the best possible light for fungus.

there are 10,000k lights that are good, the 20,000k lights are brand new and they are outstanding, that's what i would suggest

When you say chemical sticks, you dont mean glow sticks do you (the kind you crack and they glow)? and with LEDs, can you get an LED lamp thats not a flashlight?

Rover uses a little 4 watt night light. seems to work with out too much heat. He also is using a footlocker. Plastic from K-mart $20. and it's lockable.
