planted sorority lighting

So I am preparing to set up a planted sorority, I already have an idea of the plants I want to get, the easy low light ones (java moss, java fern, anubia, moss balls) and plan to do so in a 20g long. However the lighting is blowing my mind a little bit, and Im wondering if anyone can recommend some decently priced light fixtures, at this point I have no idea if I will have a hood or not (dont have the tank yet, may pick one up without a hood or look for a used one with). I am rather keen on LEDs though not set on them, Id really rather not spend an arm and a leg either.

Thanks in advance.

So what type of lighting did you go with?

I've had BAD luck with coralife fixtures. Most tend to overheat and bulb ends up dying. They look cool though.

If you're on a budget, just go with the STANDARD fluorescent light fixtures, just buy a nicer bulb.
