Best lighting for 30 extra high freshwater

Can't decide on which would be better for moderate light plants in a 30 extra high aquarium. Is the new Coralife 24" T-5 double tube fixture a better choice than say an Odyssea compact flourescent 65 watt?

A tank that high up will need light can penetrate deeper water. Go for bulbs that are 10,000 K which ever lighting system is recommended.
