Lighting suggestions for a desktop tank

The Innovative Marine 8g Nuvo tank that I just got will be going on my desk. I won't be using the 14k light that came with the tank as I'd rather get a light for it that's in the 6.7k to 7k range.

Does anyone have a suggestion for a light that would grow moderate-high light plants in this tank? The substrate is about 10" down from the rim so anything with decent PAR at 12" should work. I would look at a kessil but its going to be on my desk and I really don't want a light that's blinding quite that close.
