Florescent light for 2.5 Gallon tank?

I am thinking about replacing the lights in my 2.5 gallon tanks. Right now I am using the Incandescent lights that came with the tanks. I would really like to switch to Florescent lights. My question is, what watt Florescent light do I need to buy for my 2.5 gallon tanks?

I think it would depend wether you want real plants in your tank, if you do then it should be atleast 3-4 watt per gallon

I am not planing on having really plants in my tank. I just like the look of Florescent lights better.

I have an incan hood that I put 2 of the flourescent bulbs from the pet section at Wal Mart in. It now uses a little over 1/4 the wattage to produce a TON more light. They also run cooler than the old incans. If I had this back when I was younger I would never have purchased a flourescent hood!
