With a single tube I would select a good full spectrum type. A T8 in 18 inches [watts makes no difference, they are basically standard for the tube size] with a kelvin rating around 6500K is what you want. You might find these in hardware stores, made by GE, Sylvania, Phillips. If not, fish stores will have them but much more expensive in brands like Hagen's Life-Glo 2. ZooMed's Ultra Sun is good if you can find it, slightly cheaper than Hagen tubes.

The aquarist is one who must learn the ways of the biologist, the chemist, and the veterinarian. [unknown source]

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If you’re going to take it under your wing then you’re responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]
