    Sorry for the delay. Haven't been making the rounds on the forums as much as I used to lately.

    That lamp you pictured will be useless. The wattage is so low, it won't do your tank any good.

    My PAR38 on the other hand, should do pretty well. The dimensions of your tank fall within what I consider the coverage limit for the lamp. Just keep in mind that PAR in the center will be much higher than at the edges, so place livestock accordingly.
