For my t5 I use the Red Sea max bulbs. I have an 8 bulb fixture and I use 4 blues, 3 whites and 1 pink. I loooooove these bulbs. They really make the corals pop and mine are growing like crazy.

I strongly recommend ATI bulbs. I am growing montipora and a birds nest with no problem; along with lots of LPS and soft corals.
