As far as substrate goes I would recommend either ADA Aqausoil or Fluval Shrimp Stratum. The Stratum looks better in my opinion, but the Aquasoil is easier to plant plants in, both provide lots of nutrients for the plants.

On my 20 tall I chose to just use two 15w T8 flourescent tubes. They're cheap, easy to get a hold of, and grew low-medium light plants without problems.
