I'm going to be ordering a 36" 4 bulb fixture from catalina, which of course will be overkill for even a 40 gallon tank. Maybe a 1 or 2 bulb 39W T5HO fixture would work for you considering how shallow this tank is, if you were to go with T5HO.
This fixture would work good even though it isn't the new streamlined looking fixture, it's in your budget and should be plenty of light for you. You could use one bulb with a midday burst if you wanted. It all depends on how bright it really is.
