This fixture would work good even though it isn't the new streamlined looking fixture, it's in your budget and should be plenty of light for you. You could use one bulb with a midday burst if you wanted. It all depends on how bright it really is.
Ah, I didn't even see the link. Yeah this one looks better.
Since it comes with one 10000K and one Blue Actinic would I request for a 6,500K bulb instead of the blue?
