Light fixture for 29 gal. planted tank

I would like to know what type (brand, model, etc.) of light that you would recommend for a standard 29 gallon planted tank. I would like to have moderate light plants, so was going for about 60-90 watts. The problem is that all the lights that I find seem to be either the wrong size (if it is smaller in length than the aquarium is that a problem?) or not enough wattage. I found one, but it requires legs and I don't know if a standard glass top would fit with them sticking out on the sides (it is made by coralife). What do you use? I would appreciate any suggestions. Thanks :) .

This is the exact light I would buy:

The only problem is that it comes with a 50/50 light designed for saltwater, so you'd want to get it with a full spectrum bulb for plant growth.
