Being that a FOWLR tank has no lighting minimum requirements, you can use anything you want. A bulb in the 10k spectrum would look white, 14k a slight hint of blue and 20k a blue look. It would be a personal preference as to how you want/like it.

Why...because fish and live rock don't need any special light to live.

LED's if you have the money... because it can be the most customizable and provides possibility of an upgrade to a Reef.
A two or three light Compact Florescent/T5... because they are cheep and you don't need much light on a FOWLR.
