The 50 watt Solar Raptor gives a lot of light. The whole bottom turns green already.
I had to drill a big hole in the lighthood so I could fit the Solar Raptor. This hole also provide enough airflow so the heat doesn't build up in the lighthood.

for comparison (only 17 days between those photos):


At the moment the lights are on all day. I plan to have the lights on for 8 hours a day.
I have no mesh so the UV is lost but that wasn't the main purpose I bought the Raptors.
The T5 is necessary as the light beam of the Solar Raptor is very narrow.
