That is the 100W, depending on how far away from the light it is and if it shoots all the light straight down or half goes up through, say a lamp shade. You may not need it that bright.

Mine came from Ace hardware, and not all of the daylight ones are the same Kelvin / K rating.

Also saw a plant grade light bulb a Walmart in their pet/ fish /aquarium bulbs.

And Zoo Med has one that is called Ultrasun.
6500 K daylight self ballasted compact fluorescent lamp
Ideal for all freshwater, marine, and reef tanks
Excellent color rendition for optimum viewing
Promotes photosynthetic processes in plants/marine algae
Fits standard medium base

All good for growing plants!
Thanx for the info I did go buy a betta today and he seems to have plenty room ill go buy the light stuff tomorrow
