Agreed, the T5HO sun blasters are economical, come in 4', 3', and 2' sizes, with 6400K lamps for a reasonable price. Plus they can be daisy chained to run off a single timer.

Perhaps the Sunblaster T5HO's? They are relatively affordable and can be daisy chained together to best meet your setup. Locally the single bulb 48" fixture goes for $42.95. Add $20 for a...
