If it were my tank id buy at least a 30 watt bulb. Other than that I don't think you can improve on anything accept maybe fertilizing.

I'll go a little scientific for you.
Wattage is an energy measurement. (Amps x Voltage = Watts)
Lumens is a light output measurement. This is a great resource comparing lightbulbs.
LEDs pull less wattage per Lumen than Flourescents do. So an LED at 10 watts may put out the same amount of light as a Flourescent at 30.
Then you get into color differences (and I am not taking up that issue).
