What kind of tank is this going to be? Different tanks have different requirements. Is it Fish only? Reef with low light corals? Reef with high demanding corals?

If it only contains live rock, standard tank lighting is fine. Altho I would use a 50/50 bulb instead of the bulb that comes with most aquarium fixtures.
