ATI, UVL, and Giesemann have the best reputations as far as t5's go. Drfostersmith.com sells UVL's for cheap. I have a 6-bulb configuration, and I use this combination of UVL bulbs.

front:
super actinic
Aquasun
actinic White
actinic white
aquasun
super actinic
Back

This combination gives my tank a bit of a pinky hue to it that I don't especially like, when I order bulbs again, I may swap one of the aquasuns for a super actinic for a more crisp blue.
