You dont "need" a light that is the exact same size... if you go all out and get a Halide and hang it 8+inches above your tank it will light your entire tank.

You'd best getting a fixture that is 36" so everything is lit up equally.

This is true as your MH will cover only about a 24" space adequately. Both sides will not have as much as the center.
