T5s and T12s are both good options. LEDs are certainly good and if you have bottomless pockets are the way to go. Extremely bright, produce little heat and produce beautiful shimmers.

You could keep just about any light lover under VHOs though.

VHO (T12s) are brighter.

no they aren't T12 were outdated years ago, they just put out a higher wattage. T8s took the place of T12 years ago

T5s are brighter, and they can be individually reflected where as T12s can't be.
