Default Any DYI lighting guides out there?

I have searched google with little success. Any DYI lighting guides out
there you guys/gals are familiar with? Looking at a nice solution for my
planted tank that is being moved from direct sun light (where my plants have
been thriving) to a basement, where I have more room and a bigger tank (150
gallons vs 55). Thanks!

T12 flourescent (cheap)

T8 or (better) T5 or T6 Fluorescent (not so cheap, way better)

Arc lamps (best, expensive).

What's your budget?
