I would tend to agree with you there. I have one Triton in my four bulb bank,
and will probably go ahead and replace it with another, but it sure did mess up
the aesthetics of my tank when I added it. I prefer the Ultra Tri-Lux over the
Triton for color hands down.
The Triton does not show my rams off well at all, and may be a contributor to a
very noticeable increase in red algae growth that began about the time I added
I was able to balance my lighting color out eventually, though.
BTW, I use one Triton and one Ultra Tri-Lux along with two cheap bulbs that I
use to adjust color in the tank.
