The temperature is around 79 degrees.

I'm adding a bunch of small pond snails. I was also thinking of some baby guppies.

Help with lighting a 30" long tank

I think a 30" Finnex Ray2 led light fixture would work great with the tank.

Plus, you would have the nice pure white light and shimmer that you get with LEDs and Metal Halide lights.

Incandescent bulbs are the wrong color spectrum for plants. You are much better off using the cfls. You should try to get a 6500K color spectrum.

I have a 29g tank and just purchased a 30" Finnex Fugeray. I love this fixture. It gives about 35 micromols. This gives me medium light although on the low end.
