If you get live plants, I would go with 10w bulbs, two of them. Pennywort grows very nicely if left floating, the leaves will all face the surface and the roots will dangle into the water. There is a photo in the plant profile [second tab from the left in the blue bar across the top of the page takes you to the profiles section, or when the scientific or common name is used in posts exactly as in the profile it will shade and you can click the name, as Brazilian Pennywort] but not of it floating, so I'm attaching a photo of one of my tanks that shows this plant floating and planted. It is the stem plant in the centre, and another couple of stems to the right of centre; and it is the floating plant in the centre and left of centre at the surface. Sometimes you can see this plant in fish stores, or online, or someone who has it and is near you might sell/give you some. If you were near me you could have lots of it, I am always thinning it out. A lovely plant.
