Lighting recommendation?

I have a hooded 20 gallon that came with incandescent lighting. I'd like to change to fluorescent. I hate incandescent lighting with aquariums =/ you can barely see and it doesn't bring out the colors at all. The aquarium has a single 25 watt incandescent tube light and recommends nothing over 25 watts. What would be a good fluorescent to replace it with? Do I need a bulb specifically for aquariums or will any walmart fluorescent bulb be ok?

Any fluorescent bulb will work, it doesn't have to be specifically for aquariums. Just measure the fixture in your hood to make sure you get the right length. If you don't have any live plants, 25w should be fine. I like full daylight (6500K) bulbs, makes everything look great :)
