home depot / lowes light

I heard from someone that a desklight from either home depot or lowes ( i forget which) was good to use on a 2.5 gallon nano tank. My question is, first where is it from, second, is the bult that it comes with good enough for plants, or should it be replaced with a specialized one?

Home Depot, 27 watt 'daylight spectrum' desk lamp. I've actually seen it at Walmart as well for a little more. You don't need to change the bulb for it (if I recall, the replacement bulbs are all 'daylight spectrum' as well).
