Can I use flood light for basking bulb?

What wattage would you recommend for 36 X 18 X 12 Exo Terra for a flood light? What basking bulbs do you guys use? I have used Zoo Med, Exo Terra, and etc.. and have found they are not all that great. If you have a recommended reptile-designed basking bulb please tell me.

Note it will not emit UVA or UVB so you still need UVA & UVB from another source overtop basking spot.
