Ah, okay. Thanks for the info. I figured my lighting would be pretty weak.

Anyways, in t5 lighting... is there any way to get a t5 set up without spending 200-400 dollars on equiptment? I've seen people use what pretty much appear to be lamps. Is that more inexpensive?

ZooMed makes a 2x39w t5ho as well, its 80 dollars on petco's website. Don't know if thatd be better than the one on ebay.(deleted said ebay link because i found out that posting ebay links isnt allowed ^^ sorry about that!)
