I looked and couldn't see any CFLs on sale.
You sure its www.hydroponics.com ?

Eurobatteries.com sell a plain CFL ES 105Watt at 6400K for only £14.85.
So only around $30.


I bought one out of interest and put it in the up lighter in the living room.

Wow, it's bright!

Wife hated the colour it made everything.
Strangely I though everything looked more natural... ;-)

More tanks in the shops are coming with CFLs it seems. My Interpet AQ4 60L 
tank has two 15W CFLs in it and yet the shop doesn't stock spares...
(Interpet still don't have a public face or website). Oh hum.
