    Hard to recommend bulbs because of the dynamics of every different enclosure. It's one of those things that most of us have to figure out according to our situation. All depends on the enclosure height, length, even the atmosphere where you live.

    I like Dylans suggestion though.

    Once you figure it out - keep extra bulbs on hand for power outages, or maniacs that start hoarding them. (lol)
