My worry with going cheap would be how good the ballast is? Will they have the punch to actually run the T5's or just enough to cut them on? I would be in interested to see what the PAR rating is for one of those.

I agree, I'd go with the dimmable LED set x2, and you should be good.

You can test a couple minutes after. With the circulation of the water it levels out quick. Go with the dimmable LEDs.
