    i use white light, but i wish i used red.
    red bulbs make everything one color so it reduces pecking.
    it also makes pictures come out not as good, but oh well

    ecoglow i havent used but ive heard it is wonderful! it doesnt over heat or under heat. I would think the only bad thing is, is as they grow they cant fit under it and poop on top?
