Since your only doing fish the lighting doesn't really matter all that much. But if you plan to have corals in the future I'd buy 1 t5 light now so you can add another later.

For fish live aquaria is pretty good on their recommendations for nano fish so here is a link to take a loom at some of the fish.

Thanks! This website looks good and they have a lot of good fish that I could keep in my tank. One more question can just use a regular Florescent light to keep live rock.

I don't know what you mean by keeping
All live rock is, is that it is cured. Lighting has nothing to do with it in my knowledge. But as stated before if your looking to grow algae and at some point corals then I'd go with t5 lights. Your normal lights would work for the time being imo but the growth of algae won't be very good if any
