Lighting suggestion

I just started my planted tank about 4 months ago and have gotten good results just using a 200 watt equivalent CFL from my local home improvement store and mounting it vertically in one of those clamp on aluminum shop light housings. It was cheap too, I have a 55 gallon tank and I bought 3 bulbs and clamp lights for around $50.
