Lighting Help

Hi all,

I'm having a hard time deciding what lighting to use. 
My tank stats:
36 long x 20 wide x 18 high (about 55 gal).

My choices for lighting are -
4-55w, 4100k -  compact fluorescent (sylvania)
6-25w T8, 5000k lamps.

With the T8 lamps, I can go up to 8 lamps, because each ballast will do 3 or
4 lamps.  With the compact fluorescent, the only bulb I can get locally is
the 4100k bulbs for about $10.00 cdn.

Would the 4-55w CF be too much?  Which one would you all choose?
