I have CFL lighting (2x 96 watt tubes) and as you know the replacement tubes are far too expensive, so am very interested to hear of your experiences with SHO

It was a bit of work on my part. I read the information about the specific bulbs, and have a few freinds that grow indoor plants year round. they recommended a self ballasted light and after a couple of hours I had come to the conclusion of purchasing the sho light bulbs. I have them 3-4 inches saftley from the aquarium water and are cooled by a larger fan found from a heating company. ive had them for 4 days and all of my anubis have 2 fresh leaves on each and the java fern is going insane.Im currently on duty now, as soon as i am relived i will post pictures of the finished product.
