light ideas please

After reapeated requests my wife is getting her 60 gallon Hex tank for
Xmas.  I have already started working on the custom oak stand but am
a little puzzled on how to properly light it.  The width of the tank is only 
27 inches between long points and the longes bulbs I can see fitting in
a hood would be a single 24", two 18" or about four 12" .  Any any of these
combinations I cannot see getting enough total wattage to handle some
plants.  The standard hood for this tanks only take a single 20 watt bulb
again way to little.

Has any one set up a 60 gallon hex tank for plants?  And what did you use 
for lighting.?  Suggestions please.
