New 4x2x4 Coming. Should I use (2) 34" T5HO bulbs?

I'd use them inside the mesh, suspended. There will be ability to climb to about the 3-foot level at a couple of points in the enclosure. What do you think? OK, Less, More? THANKS!

One UVB light will be plenty, You want to create areas that have little to no UVB as well. If you have a dual T5 fixture, then you could put a 6500k bulb next to the UVB bulb to increase the brightness of the enclosure.

Thank you! I had not thought of that option for a 2-bulb fixture.
