You're most welcome.

Seeing that you hate the yellow end of the light spectrum, try and go up in your spectrum goal. Like I was saying, 10k is my favorite of the (relatively) easy to get fluorescent bulbs.

Another bit of advice for you is the possibility of mixing different spectrums of bulbs to get the desired color. Before I started ordering bulbs online, I had to make do with local shops inventory and wasn't very happy until I hit on the combo of a power glo bulb + an aqua glo bulb. Neither individually looks very good to me, but mixed together turned out fairly close to the 10k bulbs. Hope that doesn't throw another wrench into your plans.
