How many lumens should the bulb be I know that 5200 k would be good for the spectrum but not sure on the lumens also I found a small 65w hps think it would produce to much heat

Just put in one of the bulbs you use around your house. I have an energy saver bulb in mine...converts to a normal 40 watt bulb.
