I believe CFs can last up to 2 years.  I know the
light output of T12 drops off after 6 months, so I
usually replace mine at this time.

For a 30" deep tank and with light demanding plants I
would shoot for 3-4 watts/gallon, but that is just my
opinion.  Maybe someone else in the group can comment
on this.
