recommended lights and canopy for 20g long?

Im really struggling to find the right products for my 20g long...I have a single bulb light strip 6500k on a glass canopy and am having a tough time growing plants...Im trying to upgrade by I have noooo idea what to look for? What light bulb should I be looking for and where might I be able to find a double light stip for a glass canopy? I see them for tanks 48" but nothing for a 20long.

What is your tank length? Finnex makes a lot of adjustable lights, and the Fugeray is usually appropriate for systems that don't use CO2.

You can also find large a variety of lights on Ebay.
I have learned about different light set-ups just by window-shopping there.

I have a 20 long with a single 6500k flourescent light and have no problems with plant growth. Is anything blocking the light like floating plants.... is the glass top clean where the light is? Also what type of plants do you have? Could be many variables.
