Custom canopy & lighting

Hello, I'm in the process of setting up my first saltwater tank and a little confused on lighting. I want to build my own canopy to match my stand and because my tank is odd shaped, I'm wanting to start with just fowlr and have room for probably 2 48" lights and a 36" lights from what I've read I'm leaning towards compact fluorescent but not sure what wattage i should get and where I can get all the ballast and all other accessories needed to mount them in my canopy. Any help is greatly appreciated.
