Need suggestions for 2 gallon lighting

I would like to set up a small tank at work. I really like the 3 gallon eclipse, but I don't think that will fly with my employer. That leaves me with the 2 gallon explorer 2, from Marineland. Only problem is, it comes with an incandescent candleabra type bulb, and I want to have some low light mosses and ferns. Anyone know if there is a flourescent light that might fit in the hood, ballast and all? It would also need to have bulbs available for it that are in the correct temperature range. Any ideas would be appreciated.

You should be able to fit a 13 watt CFL bulb in place of the incandscent bulb.
