Lighting for FW..

I have a 50 Gal (30" wide) and the light I got with it is for a SW reef tank. so it is too much power to keep on for a longer period.. I have it on for a shorter time, but would like to get a different bulb or just new fixture..

What is best? the bulb I would need is 2G11, but what do I need to look for in a FW bulb?

If I did a newer fixture, I would like one like my 55 gal.. the 55 gal has a coralife fixture with dual bulbs forget the specs on the bulbs.

Any thoughts?
