T-5 vs T-6 lighting?

What is the difference between T-5 and T-6 lighting. I am looking to upgrade from what I have and I am seeing some T-6 lighting at about 1/2 the price of T-5. Is T-6 acceptable for fresh water planted tanks?

T-5 lighting will become the #1 lighting for aquariums in the near furture. The T12's are all but extinct and the T5's are much more efficient than T8's or T6's.
