Lights For Ocean Free Tank

I have a coince between a 13 watt power compact full spectrum light and a 50 watt haolgen desk lamp Which do you think I'd be better off with. I honestly like the color of the halogen, but I want what's best for plants.....

Go with the 13 watt power compact. Haolgen lamps don't do anything for plants.

What are the dimensions of the tank? I am lighting a 6 inch cube with a 20 watt halogen.
