Default Cheapest place for bulbs.

Does anyone know of a good site to purchase compact flourescent bulbs at a reasonable price? I'm looking for either the 6700K or 10,000K Coralife brand or equivalent ones. THanks!

The Wattage of the fixture/bulbs needed would be helpfull.

Default Arigatoo!

Thanks for the suggestion on websites. I have a JBJ fixture that is supposed to have 4x65 watt bulbs. I was wondering if 65W and 55W bulbs could be mixed and matched on this fixture. I was thinking to get 2X65W 6700K and 2X55W 10,000K bulbs. The only reason why I'd be using a mixed pair is because here in Hawaii the 65W bulbs are $4-$5 dollars more expensive per than the 55W ones. Does anyone know of any drawbacks to this setup? Thanks.
