 Construction  sand  may  get  compact  fast  leading  to  anaerobic  bacteria  build  up.  There  is  some  debate  on  this  but  I'd  use  pool  sand  or  aquarium  sand.  Also  it  will  depend  on  the  cichlid  types  that  you  plan  to  keep.  Some  varieties  will  go  on  digging  the  sand,  but  only  at  some  places.
 
 Since  there  are  no  plants  lighting  is  not  important.  Looking  at  the  size  of  the  tank,  I  would  suggest  LED  floodlights  to  keep  the  setup  cooler  and  reduce  your  power  bills  in  the  long  run.  You  can  also  get  rows  of  custom  LEDs  fitted  on  the  hood  with  alternating  white  and  blue  for  day  and  night  effect.
