Default Looking to tear down and rebuild the tank this winter

So I am looking to tear down the tank this winter and just looking for some ideas as I want to change out the substrate.

I want to keep it pretty lowtech cuase i don't have the time to maintain a hightech tank.

This is a twenty tall I actually probably have too much light and I'm going to replace that and build a hood to match the stand.

First things. The majority of the plants are water wisteria, crypts, lots of anubias and some bulbs, what kind of light would be good?

Second, what would be a good substrate? I've got a mix of eco complete and small gravel, never liked the eco complete and i'd like to do some kind of soil but preferably something that isn't going to be totally messy.

Any ideas?
