Good, that's an incandescent fixture taking two bulbs. The best bulbs to get are compact fluorescent (CFL)--these are those spiral type--in a "daylight" with a kelvin rating of 6500K, and two 10w bulbs will be fine. I use GE brand, but I believe Phillips and Sylvania also make similar.
You can buy them at hardware-type stores, usually in a package of two. The main thing is look for the Kelvin number, 6500K, GE calls theirs "Daylight". This has good spectrum and colour hue for the plants and the tank. And 10w for each is fine over a 10g.
And the pH is fine.
