Looking at the tubes which will fit in my base unit (580mm), there are really only two choices available. The Soft UV tube looks like it might be the most suitable. Comparing them to the 6% T5HO, what do you think?

Soft UV/Power UVB

Here's the Arcadia and ZooMed to compare them to:

This one also looks quite good (Level 5), but at 600mm I don't think it will fit in my base.

Given the rate at which 580mm UV tubes seem to be disappearing from the market, I think I should stock up while I can!
