All Glass Bowfront lighting question

Spoke on the phone with a LFS about a 36g All Glass bowfront. I will visit this weekend, but have a question about the hood.

Looking at the All Glass website with regards to the hood, I see the basic option to be a "deluxe full hood" that lists the lamp type as flourescent.

1. Not having seen it in person, I assume this has one (1) bulb?

2. If only one, and I want a FOWLR, is the standard bulb good enough, or should I replace it with something better?

3. If so, replace it with what?

I stand by to receive your wisdom

Just replace the bulb with a 10,000k bulb by coralife and you should be fine for a FOWLR only tank setup.
