150 gallon Freshwater Advice

Hey folks,

I've been researching a lot of equipment, but I wanted to get some tailored suggestions on here for setups on my 150 gallon African Cichlid tank. This tank is current setup, but I'm redoing it and changing from gravel to sand.

Tank: 150 gallon, 72in long, 30in tall, 18in deep
Lighting: ? Currently have single tube florescent, but would like at least a dual with lunar lighting and built in timer. Any fixture recommendation?
Filtration: Have a Marineland C-530 and have ordered a Proflex Wet/Dry Trickle Sump Model 4 rated at 2200 gal/hr max
Overflow: Ordered CPR CS202 rated for 1500 gal/hr
Heaters: Currently have 2 x 200 watt that might not fit in my sump. Recommendation or Temp controller and heater(s) I could put in my sump?
Pump: Any recommendations for a submersible that could get 1500 gal/hr with about 5ft of head?
Substrate: Most likely getting ~100lbs of pool filter sand and 50lbs of Cichlid aragonite sand
Décor: Lots of lace rock and some large Swahala wood

Thanks for any help!
