I agree, don't waste any money on something that is not going to be adequate. Over a 4-foot tank you want a fixture that takes 4-foot tubes [and these are widely available in good spectrum for planted tanks, it is a very common size]. A single T8 tube will be low to moderate light, a dual T8 will give you more options. A single T5 would work but these are very hard to find; do not get a dual T5, that will be way too much light.
