lighting advice needed!

I have a 29 gallon tank w/ 45 LBS LR and a 3 inch sand bed. I'm assuming total water content to be no more than 22 gallons b/c of displacement. I want to keep a bulb anenome, and ricordia mushrooms. Does anyone have any suggestions concerning the cheapest lighting for this set up? Any good deals on the internet etc.? I'm assuming 100 watts should be enough. Any advice would be well appreciated.

you can check out hellolights.com they have some pretty good deals.. I also saw some great deals from http://www.petsupplyliquidator.com I would say that 100 watts would be pretty decent.. But i would honestly try to get up to about 150 or so.. They say 3-5watts per gallon which in your case high end comes out to 145watts.. I am still a newbie myself but I believe 100watts should be good however its easier to spend the few extra bucks for the few extra watts in my opinion.. However listen to what the others say as well.. There are some very smart people around here... If I am wrong someone please correct me as I am not that Familiar with all the corals.. Just the ones that I am Interested in.. And I surely dont want to give out bad info..
