Just to make sure we're all on the same page with the light. The fixture takes screw-in bulbs (incandescent), so the best are what bigfish93 suggested. GE make a Compact fluorescent bulb called "Daylight" with a kelvin rating of 6500K. It is very good light both for plants and the fish colours. If you have a fixture with two bulb sockets, get 10w bulbs (they usually come in a package of two). If you only have one socket, a higher wattage would be best. But probably you have two, so 10w bulbs will be fine.

The Flourish Comprehensive Supplement is a good liquid fertilizer. If you can't get it, the Nutrafin Plant-Gro should work fairly well. I have not used this myself, I prefer Flourish Comprehensive, but from what others report the Plant-Gro seems to be fairly good. You really don't need substrate fertilizers, but they will help for the large sword. But it will grow with the liquid fer.
