Need help with light??

Hi there everyone!
It's been a while since I've been on the forum because I'm quietly picking up all the supplies for the 5.5 gallon I'm going to be setting up.
My mom just purchased a little desk lamp (with two outlets for the heater and filter in the base of it, how freaking convenient!) and I was wondering if I could get some advice on what bulb I should purchase.

I think I'm going to stick with some lowlight plants like java moss and fern, maybe some anubias nana if I can find in it my area as well as a moss ball. So I know I don't need a very intense bulb, but if you could point me in the right direction that would be lovely.

Any suggestions for easy to care for plants are also welcome if you can think of anything worth mentioning. Thanks in advance~
