Lighting help needed

I moved into my current house 11and yrs ago and just now have decided to set up the aquarium that is in the downstairs family room. Its 62" long,16" tall and 6" deep. I used an online calculator to find out it will hold 26 gallons of water. Now i am doing some research into getting the equipment i need. Filter, heater aren't too hard to figure out but I'm having a hard time finding lighting. I'm thinking for this length i will need 2 fixtures? Cost is an issue -any suggestions?
