I could not find any full spectrum t-8 lights at the hardware store, and the guy told me to just use two different shades of t-8. He said that this is all a full spectrum lamp is. Just wondering if any one else does this, it sure is cheaper.  Using them for rabbits if it matters.

I believe that if you mix a "cool" and a "warm" bulb in the same fixture, you have pretty much accomplished the same thing as the expen$ive "full spectrum" bulbs.

I know people who grow plants indoors ("for legal purposes" who use the cool/warm combo.  Besides being cheaper, you can buy them anywhere that sells bulbs.

That's what I did and it looks a little different if you look at the light itself, but looking at the light it casts is pleasant, hopefully the rabbits thrive under it.
