Would a grow light LED like this (would be using two) be sufficient for supplemental/ambient lighting to brighten the 4x2x2?
You can use a regular house hould LED bulb for extra lighting - they dont give off heat and if your heat is good in the tank then its fine to use one of those - is this for the cool side of the tank I am assuming?

Yeah basking, ambient, and UVB measured with my solarmeter are perfect and checked religously. I had a 24" T5 sunblaster spectrum light in there for ambient lighting and it burnt out the other night. Finding a 24" bulb with quick shipping is ridiculously difficult. I bought a 6 pack of 21" thinking those were the right bulbs. They were not. But yes, this is for the middleish/cool side.

I send alot of people there for fixtures -- they then need to change the bulb out to either the Arcadia 12% bulb or the Reptisun 10.0 T 5

You can if you want. If you look at the spectra of that bulb, you'll see its very similar to the spectra for florescent bulbs (your UVB bulb).

If the goal here is to more mimic natural sunlight, you should do so by trying to match the sun spectra by filling in the spectra gaps in your current lighting output.

That's unnecessary (and very hard to do with current available technology) so I would just recommend whatever provides you the light you want. Typically, a basking bulb and UV bulb are sufficient amounts of light.

Mirage came out of brumation on April 26. He was doing great. On May 2 he started acting funny. We just redid his tank, and he keeps going into one of his hides. He just lays there. He shows no intrest in food. HELP!
