In my opinion a 30 inch high tank is best lighted with T5HO lights. The number of bulbs depends on whether you want low light, slow growth, possibly with no CO2, or you want to use CO2, and get some faster growth. For the latter a pair of T5HO bulbs close together will do it. If the tank is more than 18 inches front to back depth, you can get more uniform lighting by using two of those two bulb lights, spaced a foot or so apart.

If you weren't a girl, I would suggest AH Supply bright light PC light kits.:D I know AH Supply ships to other countries. Those would give you less light, but use more electric power doing it.
