Newbie setting up 90g comunity tank

Hi I'm new to this. Amongst a few other things I just ordered some slate rock, I read that it doesn't effect the ph at all. I rather maintain the ph at a moderate rate then have it shoot up skie high and then being hard to bring it down. Also what's the best wattage bulbs for planted 90g I got aquatic life. It came with one 6000k and a pink one. Pink one is lower wattage.Any advice regarding rocks or anything else will greatly be appreciated
Thanks!

Welcome to the AA community! I'd start a nice thread in the planted section, you'll get more views there. I'd help but I'm not a planted guy and don't wanna give you the wrong advice.

it all depends on what kind of plants you want in there. if you want a low growing like HC or hairgrass you will need more light but if you want to start out with some easy plants that will fill in nicely i would start out with java ferns, java moss, xmass moss, any crypts or anubius.
what is your substrate, i know most will say this doesnt matter but if your not using something like eco complete or floramax you might want to do root tabs
