How about this-
Odyssea T5 Aquarium Lighting
Plenty of light and the tank will look great.

Better how? If less efficient and less powerful is better, then you are right.

You have a very tall tank. You'll need T5s, at the least, to grow plants. T8s won't penetrate anywhere near the bottom of the tank.

I use LED floodlights over my small planted tank and they grow anything (high light). If you want a cheap low to medium light setup you could give those a go. They're sold on eBay. For an easy low tech system I'd recommend three 20w or 30w daylight waterproof floodlights. Should cost around $100 bucks for all three and you won't have to worry about buying bulbs at all. Otherwise I'd recommend a T5 fixture.

...Which is more powerful than T8, even though the number is smaller.
