Lighting

Hi I'm totally new to aquariums I've set up my tank it's a 4ft x 2ft x 2ft 120gallon I've got my salt in with my coral sand and gravel my plan is to have clowns with anemone and what ever else could work Within in my tank next question would be lighting I have read through some of the forums but still am confused as for t5 and led and the amount of tubes I would need for my anemones and whatever else I learn to incorporate into my aquarium (for a beginner I am starting to believe my tank is to big)

With saltwater the bigger you go the easier it is although it does become more expensive..a tank that size you would want a 6 bulb T5 HO which should be plenty for pretty much anything you want but the best route if money is a big issue would be a MH with T5s

Edit* this is if your planning on a reef tank that is
