You certainly could get a higher watt bulb, but some fixtures are only rated for a certain wattage so make sure before you change bulbs. I am currently growing Blyxa and HM in a 5.5 gallon with 27 watts of compact fluorescent and they are both thriving, if that helps you gauge how much light you may need... Good luck, I'm sure it will look great!
