since your going with a planted tank the light you choose is going to be crucial for success. i use a hagen glo seris fixture, they have built in hanging fixtures and even include a chain and hooks in the box, or it will mount to the tank without needing a canopy. keep in mind though if you go with the glo fixture (IT DOES NOT INCLUDE BULBS) i LOVE the fixture and so do my plants since switching.
you can find info here,
i bought my 48" fixture from ebay and bulbs from drfostersmith.com
i paid a around 100 for the 48" fixture without the bulbs and about 50$ fot the two bubls that went in it for a comparison for ya. you can pm me with any more q's if ya like. goodluck!
