Lighting is an important purchase to research when looking into building that new aquarium display. There are many options to consider based on what you have decided to keep in your aquarium.  With a freshwater fish display you don't need bright lights; it doesn't require high lighting to maintain freshwater fish, but if you are wanting to maintain live plants you will need to add more lighting in a spectrum suited for the plants.  With saltwater tanks you have more to consider, especially if you are planning to keep any corals. Most soft corals and many LPS corals can be kept with compact fluorescent lighting, but some LPS and SPS corals, will require much higher lighting needs. Most people will suggest metal halide, or T5HO bulbs.
