I use the "high priced spread" (a mix of Triton and PennPlax Ultra Tri-Lux)
and feel there is NO compromise - excellent beauty and excellent growing.
OK, a small compromise, excellent expensive. We get them from Mail Order
Pet Shop for about $22 each. BTW, photography using "Daylight" color film
work out very well with these.
