Default Lepard Gecko and exo terra kit

We bought a leopard gecko exo terra kit, and was wondering if anyone knew what lighting we need for the gecko, the kit came with a light hood. Its the only thing I am completely stumped on.

Thank for helping.

same as above no light is needed, but sum people like to use a light which xcan be a nornal spot bulb or tube and starter unit or uv to influence day/night cycle (12 hrs) and also makes enclosure look nice but be carefull of temperatures n always use a stat wen required red bulbs are used to view night activity hope this helps there are many care sheets on here if u need more help!
