u can order halides for $230 for a 150watt kit (i use these in my 2.5' deep tank).

or a cheaper option is power compacts 130watt ones.

i've tried standard fluros, to tell u the truth..i wouldn't bother...not for a tank that deep.

mine is a marine tank so i use 2x150 watt halides for an even spread of light. I beleive only 1 is need though...u'll have some shading around the sides but who cares, just put the low light plants there =)
