Correct lighting?

(30 gallon FOWLR-44 Lbs. of LR, 3 in DSB with 20 Lbs. of aragonite LS.) Please keep in mind I'm on a tight budget, anyway, I have a 30 inch light fixture. What sort of lighting should I use to poromote growth on the LR Lighting is neccessary right, the tank receives NO sunlight.
Appreciate any help.
