Default Fluorescent lighting


I'm new to reptiles and am building a 3ft viv to house some Leopard Geckos in;

What would be the best way of lighting this? Could i use 2 fluorescent lamps? One daylight tube and one red tube (for night) they are about 21Watts a tube.

Thanks for the reply, have decided to use LED for both day and night lighting now, and a CFL for a little bit of UV.
