Simple flourescent strip lights will work fine. If you want to ramp it up a notch you can go with VHO or pc. I use 4 x 65 w pc's on my 120 and it's nice. Really shows off the fish.

We prefer the Actinic 03's with 10,000K split 50/50 when using Power Compacts. If you go straight 10,000K, it will look too "yellowish" IMO. What are you doing for fish?
