For just a fish only, you could use any lighting. Maybe one of those marineland LED fixtures. They will make the tank look nice.

Ok, o have a nice one on my African tank. They do look good and cheap to run .. I noticed a very small shell on the inside front glass of my tank . Would appear to be a Hitchhiker from the live rock. Should i be concerned?

No. Your fish stock list is going to take care of any shelled creatures.

Got 20 lt RO/DI water from Large LFS 30mins drive today also. 60 cent a litre. Guess thats a good price. Dearer than down the road however down the road is only RO water. This is RO/ DI and this place is mostly stocked with saltwater tanks. Its one of the bigger pet places in Brisbane.

I would recommend you having at least 1-2 to eliminate still spots where algae can build up.

Absolutely. They will help keep the water aerated, ph stable, and keep the tank clean.
