 Based on your email, it sounds you are looking for a full spectrum bulb. 
 Bulbs like the Trilux and Coralife Trichromatic are, in my opinion, way 
 overpriced--even though they may have a built in reflector. A perfectly good 
 alternative is the GE Chroma 50 bulb (They changed the name--the box says 
 "Sunshine" on it, but if you look at the bulb, it says Chroma 50. It is a 
 full spectrum, sunshine replicating bulb. They are available at Wal-mart for 
 about $5-6. Unfortunately, the output of the bulb it not as intense as the 
 output of some others, but...hey its only $6!  >>

Been using these for years now with super results.  Especially when used in
combination with a Chroma 75 bulb which is now marked as Ultra Daylight.
Just look at the stamps on some of the bulbs they tell more than the wrapper 
around them.
