With two 15w fluorescent bulbs on your tank now, you've got about 3 watts per gallon. To me, that's just perfect. The phillips bulb you have that is designated for Aquariums and Plants is probably just fine. You've done a good job supplying the light. Now it is time to focus on the other nutrients - trace, CO2, potassium and eventually Nitrates and Phosphates.
Take it slow, though. Start with a decent trace mix like Seachem Flourish, Tropica Mastergrow, etc.
