 It  depends  on  what  kind  of  setup  you  are  going  for.  
 I  would  say  60w  of  evenly  distributed  light  to  be  minimum  for  it  to  grow  most  of  the  hygroplila  and  other  easier  plants  along  with  DIY  CO2.  
 You  can  increase  the  light  to  much  extent  only  if  you  are  planning  to  have  a  pressurized  CO2  system,  else,  there  will  be  a  great  imbalance  without  sufficient  supply  of  CO2  under  high  lights.
 
 Your  tank  is  approximately  same  sized  as  mine  and  I  have  a  total  of  90w(18x5  T8s)  over  it.  I  dose  dry  ferts  and  have  about  3bps  of  CO2  supply.
 
 I  suggest  you  to  go  for  phillips/osram  T5s,  T8s  or  Plls,  any  of  these  that  suite  your  budget.

 I  have  replied  your  pm.  
 
 As  already  suggested,  dont  go  for  CFLs  they  are  quite  expensive  in  long  runs.
