Lighting for 75 gallon aquarium

I will be converting a 75 gallon aquarium from turtles to fish. I'm not sure if I will need a dual tube strip light or if a single tube strip light will work. This will just be a freshwater community tank with fake plants.

Here is a list of the fish I am planning (if there are any glaring problems here let me know)

Boesemani Rainbow
Hi Fin Lyretail Swordtail
Otocinclus
Neon Tetra
Zebra Danio
Glowlight Tetra

Any advice would be great.

THANKS!

No live plants use any lighting you want. Just don't leave it on more than eight hours a day so you avoid some algae issues.

Yep, just a single strip should do fine for a plantless community tank
