Fluorescent Bulbs

I just purchased a 55 gal aquarium that I am planning on setting up as a freshwater tank. I am having trouble deciding on which bulbs to purchase. I am not planning on having any live plants at the moment so I really only need something that would make the tank and fish look nice and was hoping that someone would have some suggestions.

Thanks

yeah if you arent doing plants, you really dont even need lights at all, but the shop lights would be your cheapest way to go
