Seachem Prime or Chloram-X
Those are the two best and least cost products on the market.
Seachem Safe is the dry form of Prime.

The type of lighting mostly depends on what you want to grow or show off, the most, in the tank. In general for a simple answer, T5HO is probably the answer. For other specific situations, other types may be optimal. I'm using a DIY LED setup on my planted 70g. I'm happy with it.
