So I was looking around for T5HO bulbs and unfortunately no where in my country carries T5 bulbs - so I planned on using CFL. Now, the problem is that no where carries 55W CFL bulbs lol.

I have a 55 gallon tank - 48" across, 20" high. Keeping it to a limit or 3 bulbs, would it be better to get three 40 W CFL bulbs or 2 60 W CFL bulbs?

Currently, I have amazon sword, dwarf sag and baby tears. I'm aiming for medium-high light. I don't use CO2.
If nothing here is recommended, could I be advised?
