Default Call for help - lighting wattage?

>What wattage fluorescent lighting will I be needing for thumbnail frogs?
>I am setting up my thumbnail viv up at the moment. Thanx.

The lighting is mostly for the plants, the frogs aren't fussy, so it depends on the height of your vivarium (tall vivs need more light) and whether you want to grow high light plants such as bromeliads (2-4 full length fluorescent tubes per vivarium) or low light plants such as pothos, java moss, etc (1-2 full length fluorescent tubes per vivarium).

Hope that helps.

The lighting for the vivs is mainly for the plants, so using normal ouput fluorescent will bejust fine.
Have a nice day
