90 gal planted tank / suggestions

New to forum. Got a 90 gal tank for Christmas. Plan on making it a planted / community freshwater tank. I want a bright white sand substrate. What type of sand would fit this description? Footprint of tank is 4 ft by 18.5 in. Not sure of types of fish yet but plan on easy low to medium light plants. Tank is 25 + tall. What type of light would be good? not wanting to spend a ton of money for a light if possible.

Pool filter sand fits the description of bright white sand to me. As for lights you can go with 48" shop lights and be fine if you can find some you can manage to make work. They are usually cheap.

Btw welcome to the forum.

Just a word of warning on the white sand...every piece of poo, debri and algae will show. It will look nice at first but after awhile you may not be happy with it. You might want to consider a more natural color sand or black. Also, some fish may looked washed out over s bright white sand. Just something to consider.
