What kind of lights for this weird Dimension?

I recently obtained a pre drilled 90 tall 48Lx15Wx30T (The 30T is throwing me off.) I'll prolly be moving all my live stock (Hard corals and a few softies) over and I'm trying to decide if 2x 250w mh's will be enough for that tall of a tank. What do yall think?

Actually I would avoid the 400w and do 250 HQI sun replicators or similar. I just went through the same thing and after talking to a lot of people who had 400w I went with the replicators. Not one person who had them recommended them. Two people I talked to had actually taken them( 400w) out and went back to 250w. Excessive heat, lots more power usage, and coral bleaching were a few of the reasons I was told to avoid.
