I have a 75 gallon planted tank and the light I currently have doesn't seem strong enough. Can someone suggest a good light bulb? Links are more than welcome! :)

What I boght but they also have a 4 bulb set for 80$ range I think
Or 23 watt 6500k cfl bulbs 4-5 bulbs and clamp on work lamps (or diy a hood with sockets) these can be gotten at grocery stor (bulbs) and home improvement stores (bulb, lamp, and/or sockets).
Bulbs usually cost $4-7 each and lamps $8-10 don't now socket or raw materials for hood price range.

What plants are you growing? and how tall is the tank..2 feet?
