    Hello @crimsonvice! It is tough to compare apples to apples just because Triton is very specific to the "Triton Method" with many different products for different situations. If we were to look at the ESV B-Ionic 2 Part Solution vs Triton Base Elements, you can makes some conclusions. Triton is certainly more complicated to administer with x4 components to dilute and dose, ESV only has the two parts. Both claim to include all major, minor and trace elements in ionic-balance like you would find in natural seawater. Both are designed to maintain your levels and not necessarily adjust them, this means you should go into the dosing regime with properly balanced levels for the best results. Cost wise, I cannot be exactly sure but based on the amount of solution you get with Triton and the recommended dosage amounts, I imagine it is a bit more concentrated and will cost a little less to maintain your levels. Feel free to reply on here directly with any more questions and I certainly would be interested in what others have to say. I have been using ESV for years and only have minimal experience with Triton, certainly not enough to make a strong opinion. -Robert @ MD

    Yes, we are currently running the 48" Aquatic Life Hybrid and x4 of the Hydra 26 HD fixtures over the Red Sea Aquarium. I really like the hybrid but be sure the acclimate it into your existing light schedule slowly. The addition of x4 T5 lamps is a substantial increase and you need to adjust accordingly if installing over an existing tank. The even spread over the tank is great and colors are certainly more intense in terms of viewing. I am using the ATI lamps; Blue Plus, AquaBlue Special and a single True Actinic.
