T5 LED Bulb Suggestions

I’m using this all-in-one system that I purchased from Lee Valley. It has two tiers with built in LEDs; 2 x 24” tubes above each tier with a built in reflector. They look just like T5’s but they are actually LEDs. I imagine I can replace them with any LED that is a T5 conversion bulb. Going to checkout the sunblaster ones!

G85, do you use reflectors? They can help. Also, I spent 3 solid days googling and reading different articles about lights before I bought the Sunblasters. There are some good technical write-ups out there about different bulbs if you're willing to wade through all the other stuff.
