Hey guys, Kevin here.
As you all know my vivarium is finished (18x18x24).
I am looking for your guys opinion on lighting for
darts. I bought the zoomed lighting fixture which as slots
for two bulbs. I bought two 6700k full day light
spectrum florescent for each of the slots.
Do you guys think there will be sufficient lighting
from just one of the bulbs? It seems that much of the
humidity is evaporating from the heat coming off of
the bulbs. As well as the top of the tank seems to
dry out by the next misting. Is this normal?
The humidity gauge i bought was **** so i threw
it out. Ill be picking up a new digital one at my next
pay check. For those that are wondering i have indeed
covered about 90% of the top with acrylic. Although,
i will be replacing the acrylic with glass shortly.
There are no frogs in the tank so i do not have to worry
about fooling around in there with a bunch of frogs bouncing
Any feedback with be greatly appreciated.
