First LED build

I'm starting a second tank (y'all said this was addictive) and would like to do a LED build. My tank is 24x12x15, my question is how many LED's should I get for medium high to high light? I also want to go dimmable so if I had too much I could turn it down. I think I got the building part figured out now it's just how much of what.

Tank 30g Long
Lights 36in Coralife T5 2 21 watt 6700K/Colormax
Filter AquaClear 50
Substrate Gravel
Ferts Florish

Check out hoppy's thread on this. He built a calculator to figure all of this out. It's linked in the DIY LED FAQ in my sig. Good luck!
