Well, usually the tank( if purchasing a kit) comes with a light in the hood. If not you can place it beneath a lamp and leave it on for 8-10 hours a day. It is advisable not to put your tank in direct sunlight as that will cause an algae bloom. Basically, place your tank away from vents so it can stay at room temp.

Anywhere from 8-10 hours is a good amount of time, if you have live plants, I believe 10-12 hours is recommended, correct me if I'm wrong though.
