A dedicated aquarium light is always essential if you are to grow plants. Planted tanks are pleasant to view and appreciated by fish so this extra expense is a worthwhile option.
People also buy aquarium lighting to help them see the fish they keep. The ceiling lamps in most rooms are just not bright enough to show the aquarium at it's best and there is little point in setting up a tank if you cannot even see the fish.
