Not a higher wattage, just a bulb of the same wattage with a different (color) spectrum. The bulb or fixture should say what the wattage is.
If you want more power (watts) you'll need to get a fixture that has a more power, or 2 bulbs that could double (?) what you have now. The ballast is built in behind that white reflector and the truth is a bigger ballast and bulb in that fixture would cost more than to get a new fixture.
If you're not worried about looks, go to HD or Lowe's and look a shop type fixtures with more power that will fit on your tank
