Default Zoo Med bulb?

Does anyone have experience with the 10 watt Zoo Med bulb? This was recommended to me for keeping plants but I have no experience with it.

What kind of plants are suitable with this bulb?

I only have a 5 gallon hex housing my Betta boy Finn

Yep. I have 2 in my 14 gallon. I do assume you are talking about the ultra sun. I grow wendtii crypts and anubias under it, and riccia. I don't know if you could grow HC or other high light plants.
