    Any particular brand of 90 watt spot light? I have 100 watt MVB at one end of the enclosure and a CHE at the other end. I still have one unused socket in the center so I could add a 90 or so watt spot light but would you recommend a brand? I have a closed chamber 6x4. thanks

    A regular flood light (not CFL) would be cheaper and just as helpful.

    compact fluorescent light

    CFLs are distinguished by a coil or spiral tube. Check the label because some models will look like a normal fluorescent bulb on the outside.
