This is a complex question even if it seems simple, but yes there is, you want lights either led, cfl, t5,t8,t13 with a temp/kelvin ange of 5000k-10,000k with 6500k being the ideal, then there is intensity how strong the light is, which determines what kinds of plants you can grow

No sunlight actually will cause more problems with algae, it is more about knowing what tank size, budget, and what you are wanting to grow, I could throw out generic answers but if it is wrong for what you want to do, it is not very helpful
