You don't need any special light. Only enough to see your fish and they see to eat. Rock- a pound per gallon is ok. Just look for lighter, more porous pieces. Not super dense boulders. The boulders have less surface area, and water has less access to the inside of the rock, where you will have low oxygen zones to house anaerobic bacteria.
