Is this enough light for my sump/fudge

The only thing that I could fine is a 13w 3500k. Is this enough light?

I would say at least a 65 watt CF. I managed to find 2, with a color rating of 6500 that I have over my fuge. I think I found them at either walmart or lowes. Mine is a 55 gallon sump.

You can get the "curly" bulbs at HD or Walmart. I have used the 20W and some higher with good results.

Forgot to say that these are daylight bulbs and will say 6500K on the package.
