i got my ocean free

yea so i got the 1.3 ocean free tank at petco and i was wondering if a 13 watt 3000k spiral bulb would be enough lightning to grow stuff, i was thinking moss or glosso or riccia, anything that grows in bunches with small leaves. should i get a better bulb like something around 6-7000k and around twenty watts?

Was the price still around $4 dollars at Petco? I think it's better to go with the 6-7000k instead of the 3000k. I was planning to go to Fry's Electronics during the Thanksgiving sale to pick up a lamp and a CF daylight bulb there. I'm on the exact same boat as you my friend. I want to grow glosso and riccia right now too in my OceanFree tank
