Just because of the depth of the 90, I would say the MH fixture. You get better penetration deeper in the tank with MH.

I absolutely agree. The MH are going to give you better penetration. They will also give you more options to the kinds of corals you can keep. The T5s will allow for SPS also but they just want have the color and growth as they would under MH.
