80l light question

This one's quick, promise...
Lighting for a 80cmx30cmx35cm tank

I (will) have an anubias, amazon sword and something the lfs is determined to call a sailboat, however google is equally determined it doesn't exist.

It's similair to the amazon sword, but darker in pigment, longer stems and longer leaves. It looks like it grows "higher" wheras the amazon sword grows "wider". If anyone think they might be able to identify I will post a picture.

These are all low light plants. The tank is near a window (apprx. 1.5m from an east facing window and the tank is facing away from the light eg. the 30x35 side is facing the window.)

What lighting would be appropriate for this tank?
There is so much information from google that seems outdated, disputed, and blatantly contradictory that I really need to ask.
