Your tank looks great by the way. I think the plant on the rock looks very cool.
As Angel079 has responded, the type of light is important. But you don't mention the tank size, a 15w tube with a kelvin rating between 5000-7000K would work fine over a 20g if that is what you have.

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]
