Hi,

The tank I am buying only comes with 2x30w flourecent bulbs.

The tank is 100cm long and around 220litres (50gal)

My local IKEA store has a set of 5 low voltage halogens each 10w, they could attache to the undside of the tank as its wood. Are these a good way to increase the light levels in my tank?

No. Wrong color temp and they are nothing more than incandescent lights. So each 5 w light would at best add 1 watt of possibly usable light.
