On the rig we're building the lights are at the 'new standard' height, the variation is largely the lights. We're using two contrast enhancing compact fluorescents (I forget the lumen's rating)
I have two Bayco 10-1/2" Brooder Clamp fixtures http://images.lowes.com/product/convert ... 6832lg.jpg
They collect the light extremely well and direct it without a hotspot.
I'm currently considering a more direct mounting as the spring clamps brings the reflectors out a little wide
