The Rosco gels cost about $8 for a 20x24 sheet, which will give you two complete sets of filters for the unit. You could double these up and/or add Rolux (diffusion gel available in various stops). The #19 is 2.3 stops. I considered the Medium Red #27 as well, but it was so dense and dark purple I figured that it wouldn't be a good choice.

The filter is fine.

It is always best to run fog test even with "safelights"

I am trying to remember which paper, and it was Forte warm grade 3, if I am remembering correctly. I was a bit surprised myself and the fog was slight but none the less still there. I have test our light up to 30 minutes and except for that specific paper no problems.
