The CHEAPEST you say :)  My 45 high cost $35 for 90 watts of light including bulbs.  How to is here:
http://Simple.aquariumplants.cx  The light strip has been running for about 9 months now with no problems.  The only drawback is that the light MAY be a little too yellow for your taste.  If so, get another cheap strip and put one of the blue plant bulbs in it.  Ballances out nicely.

This hobby CAN cost a fortune, but you don't have to spend that much togrow nice looking plants.
