I would like to add some dusk and dawn lighting low intensity that would come on before the main lights and stay on a little longer. Anything that would work well for this that is small?

You have 3 options

1) separate lights on separate timers
2) use an X10 setup
3) build your own timing circuit.
Most likely it will be separate timers. The X10 you mention as in the automated home type software?

I was mostly asking to find out what kind of light and what power to use for this application.

Tell us more about what you want and we should be able to provide more specific info.
Actually something like the 9W CF would work.

I basically am looking for something that will turn on without the full intensity of the main lights. To kind of wake up the tank and mimic natural lighting that is a gradual increase of intensity. I know when it's dark I don't want the full room lights just turned on. I am thinking 1 hour before and after.
