quick question?

I am debating to use 3x homedepot 23W philips 6500k lamps for my 30G tank or to get T5HO, probably 2x36W. I know they are both suitable for growing plants but which would give me more light?

The T5HO's will. But unless you have CO2, both setups will be too much light unless you raise them off the tank a ways.
