Full spectrum, daylight, daylight enhanced, etc. are the sort you want to consider, and a K rating between 5000 and 7000 is good; the lower number means more red and less blue, the higher the opposite. A mix is the best, around 6500K, in either the one tube or with two different tubes.

The aquarist is one who must learn the ways of the biologist, the chemist, and the veterinarian. [unknown source]
Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If you’re going to take it under your wing then you’re responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]
