I use 2 MH bulbs and i'm thinking about using t5s. I have used CO in the past and was happy, but they are very bulky, the more you put together the more heat they generate and you won't have as many options as you would with t5s. Generally you can use a fixture with 5bulbs and then switch them out to meet your needs... MH you really can't and you'll end up supplimenting them with t5s or VHO's and they put out even more heat. t5s will put out much less heat, be more cost efficient and cost less for the initial purchase. Then to top that all off you can easily change the bulbs out... i'll let you decide.
(btw i love my MH, they just got too hot)
