AHsupply has 13W T4 PC, Home Depot has replacement bulbs for workshop lights, 13W too, 7100K. Cheap.

Smallest should be 7W (and 9W next) - from aquarium store, but it should be more expensive.

I would rather use gravel/sand washer attachment to a hose (with wide part, where water "tornado" separates detritus from heavier sand. Cleaned sand drops to the bottom, detritus is siphoned out).

Should be OK, a lot of people are using 150W MH for 10 and 12g tanks. Only the area, covered by one light source, may be too small, and 2 lamps for 30" long tank could be better.
