What type of lightbulbs....?

I have a couple of questions :)

Incandescent vs. Flurorscent lightbulbs?

Which lightbulbs would look best in a planted tank, and with a blue betta?

I have a ten gallon tank that can have two lightbulbs, and I would like moderate lighting. How many watts do I need per gallon to have moderate lighting?
