For Gareth: Got My Light

Thanks so much for all your help with this. In the end I couldn't find a Compact Florescent with a good K rating locally and decided it cost just too much to buy them on-line. I was also concerned about heat a bit.

Today I just bought a new hood. It takes one Florescent 18" and came with a 15 watt 9325K GE Aqua Rays bulb which I plan to run 12 to 14 hours a day.

Wow, what a differenct it makes! I was afraid of too much brightness, but it's really beautiful what it does to the color of everything.

I'll see how it goes for awhile with my three plants (see profile) before getting any more.

Thanks again for your help,

Peter
