I'd go cathode, they'll not only light up everything else but if you get blue they tend to make lettering glow. If they're on sale get a couple, they tend to burn out quick from my experiences.

I've had some in the past, the UV cathodes don't live very long in my experience.

Go with LED strips if you can. Red cathodes lean towards orange a bit.
