Sump Lighting

Well Ive finally completed everything with my sump. I got the DSB in the middle compartment, and got my LR rubble from Premium Aquatics (which was a terrific deal cuz I got some amazing pieces) spread through the first compartment where I've got my skimmer, and thru the middle area on top of the DSB. My question is, what type of lighting would be good for this setup? I was think an LED light bar across the middle section, simply because it would be small and compact and fit underneath all the plumbing, and would put out some good lighting. Would this be sufficient? Do I need a lot of lighting for the LR? Or would a simple clip-on light with an energy saving bulb be sufficient?

I'm still a noob in the world of sumps, and appreciate any and all help on this!
