What specifically is your goal for the tank? Reef or FOWLR? Softies, LPS, Sps?

Are you asking what flow you need? And what model lights to get? Or?

Would like ideas for lighting and what kind of flow I'll need and what kind of power heads to buy

That all depends on your budget. There are too many options to realistically name them all....

Budget is really the biggest factor to help give ideas, there really are too many options like BigRedsReefs10 said

I'd probably be at the lower end
Manly I just need to know how much flow I should have in the tank and what are some good brands for power heads

And what's a good type of lighting led or t5s

Tank is
Depth 2ft (24in)
Wide 3ft (36in)
Height 3ft (36in)

Just my feeling, but the extra cost of led is worth the not having to buy bulbs at least yearly, the lower energy use, and the far lesser heat output

Take a peek at the photon units from reefbreeders, others have great things to say about the tao units and similar ones, I personally hate the company that supplies tao enough I wouldn't use them if they were given to me, but their lights are very cost effective and good quality a long as the unit doesn't crap out soon after getting it.
