Looks like you have ~45G with 35w of lighting. Not very much, to 
say the least. Even with 2 - 40w 48" bulbs, you're still only getting 
1.8w/gal, which is a lot better, but still low for high light lovers. 
HOWEVER, 4' bulbs won't fit over a 3' tank. Power compacts are 
most likely what you'll need. It all depends what you're growing. 
Anubias might like the 35watts, but you're probably in need of lots 
more light.
