Question Lighting for low light plants and fish

I'm setting up a 190 gallon aquarium (60x27x27) for my clown loaches and need to get lighting for the tank that will not be too much for the fish which prefer low light but at the same time will be enough for my plants. I am planning on having Jungle Val and Java Moss which i know are both low light plants. Is standard normal output lighting enough or do i need to go with T5 lighting or something else? I appreciate your suggestions, thank you.

A double-tube Normal output with 6500k bulbs will work I think. The depth of the tank is more important than the volume of water.
