I've been doing some research on what type of lighting to buy.  I've see
some set-ups for $300 with VHO lamps.  I plan on lighting a 55 gal. tank. 
I could buy two twin shop lights for $15.  Two cool white and two warm flo.
bulbs would run c. $6.  This would give me a decent spectrum for minimal

Is there any great advantage to HO and VHO set-ups?  The cost difference is
huge.  Any input?
