Lighting help

The tank I'm using as my planted tank is a Juwel Korall 60, the thing is it has an integral light a pl5 (20w).

Will this be suitable or should I be looking for a new light setup?

Do you have a link to the tank and lighting system-I have never heard of that brand.

What has worked best for my planted tanks-Florescent bulbs-6500 kelvin-20-40watts depending on the tank size/bulb length.

For some reason I haven't been able to get pdf's to load-I have a feeling that my computer is going to die soon...dang-it....I wish I knew more about them to fix it....Anyway....since the pdf won't load for me...Are the lights florescent-if so, if the light bulbs are not the right color temp-you can buy a new florescent light bulb-I get my bulbs in the lighting dept at either wal mart, Lowes or Home depot-much cheaper than aquarium stores/dept.
I get the "Daylight" 6500k bulbs-

Unfortunately the light is an all in one system so I can't just replace the bulb

To be safe I'll just buy a new lighting system (with replaceable bulbs)
