Default Looking into getting a 20L...need help

Like the title says I am thinking about starting another shrimp tank but this time I want to do a 20 long. My main question is what are the best choices for lighting? I WANT LOW TECH. No co2 and no ferts but still heavily planted. I figured with so many people out there with 20 long shrimp tanks this would be the best place to post. I plan on running 2 of the ATI pro ii sponge filters although I could get a 3rd if need be. I am going to be using new Amazonia substrate. I am not quite ready to get everything, I'm just trying to plan ahead. Also I'm not trying to spend a fortune on the lighting. I want enough light to grow stem plants, moss, and your other typical aquarium plants but not so much light I have algae issues. Thanks for any and all help
