T5 HO lighting question

I have a marineland t5 ho light. I am going to replace my lights becuase they need it and was curious peoples thoughts on appropriate bulbs. I can get 10,000k or 12,000k daylight bulbs and a variety of Actinic bulbs. I was going to purchase them from championlighting.com , any suggestions? I have a reef with fish. Thanks.
