Speaking of MH bulbs, are they available in as many
color temperatures as are flourescents?

If not, that might be a driving factor in which to use
in some applications, though I'm by no means a light
expert since I run a low-light system here.

Flourescents serve me just fine, and they're
inexpensive the way I have it set up on the largest
tank. I have two shop light fixtures suspended by
chains above the tank, staggered horizontally form each
other to cover the whole 6 ft long tank. (There doesn't
seem to be a noticeable shadow problem on either end.)
