29g lighting

I'm thinking about getting a 29g to replace my 10g. I've been trying to decide on the lighting but really can't make a decision. I want to make a DHG carpet, so it needs to be fairly high light. I think I'm either going to get 2 or 3 shop lamps with 23w cfls in them, or a double T5HO fixture. I know the distance from light to the bottom would be about 16" (for about 2" of substrate).

So, if anyone has a suggestion (especially if you have a 29g w/ high-light plants), I'd love to hear it. Thanks!

I am happy with my current usa sattelite plus. It is not exactly high light but I have a lot of plants that have flourished in it!
