T5 bulbs?

I have a T5HO (high output) light that I want to use for a new 20 gallon vivarium. It contains 2x24watt 6500k bulbs. I haven't had a vivarium for almost 4 years, a little behind the times. It was perfect for a regular planted aquarium. Any thoughts?

I like the T-5's for vivs. They're nice and bright, and I've gotten good growth with them. I've used the cheap Coralife double bulb T-5's for planted aquariums and they work great.
