36 ballon bowfront lighting

I have a 36 gallon bowfront tank with a single florecent 50/50 bulb. I was wondering what the wpg is in those types of bulbs. I plan on upgrading my lighting system soon, but for the time being what would you suggest bulb wise to keep my corals happy and growing for just another month until I get my new lighting system. Also what would be a good and cost effective upgrade for my bowfront ?

Corals:
Frogspawn
Hammerhead
kenya trees
Anthelias

On my 36 bow i have the new radion light. Works amazing! Dimmable Taotronics might be an option if you are low on $.

Yes. LEDs are pretty amazing and will grow just about anything you want. You just have to be careful to get ones that will sustain coral, as some will say they can but won't come close like the marineland fixtures. The taotronics are a good cheap route like stated above, as are ai sol, radions, and many others.
