 Yes.  All  tubes.  Except  LED's.  
                 

 
 +  1  to  Shelly.  You  can  go  for  LED  if  it's  available.  but  its  a  bit  costly.  you  can  DIY  a  LED  lighting  for  your  tank
 
 WPG  its  more  of  a  general  term.  its  not  applicable  for  T5,  T5HO  's  or  any  lighting  for  that  matter  for  an  aquarium.
 
 Luminous  Flux  around  1000  Lumen  (amount  of  light  that  reaches  the  surface  area),  Color  Temperature  6500  K  is  what  matter.  the  mentioned  two  provides  more  photo  synthetically  active  radiations  which  enhances  the  plant  growth!
 
 LED  provides  exactly  what  is  needed  but  with  lesser  power  consumption!                

 
 Probably  a  better  suggestion
 
 Just  a  couple  of  doubts  to  Satheesh?
 How  do  you  calculate  the  Luminous  flux  for  a  bulb  /  fixture?
 Is  it  calculated  for  the  water  surface  or  is  it  for  the  surface  of  the  substrate  that  its  calculated,  and  would  these  differ  due  to  the  water  column  that  intervenes?

 Mostly  yes.  You  will  have  to  replace  the  ballast  if  you  are  planning  to  put  T5HO  tubes.  Since  T5  &  T5HE  are  14Watts,  you  cannot  drive  T5HO  (Which  is  24Watts)  with  the  same  ballast.  If  you  could  post  the  pics  of  the  ballast,  then  I  could  explain  you  better.

 not  sure  whether  this  is  what  you  asked  for...and  the  white  tubes  markings  have  faded,  but  it  might  be  the  same  as  the  blue  tubes.
