New lighting for 29 FOWLR?

Hey all....I am thinking of getting this 65watt light for my 29 fowlr...I dont want a big bad $130+ light for corals ect...I just want a light good enough so I can see my fish...cause 20watts for 29gall ant cuting if for me! It also comes with a small lunar light....I was just wondering if anyone has it and how they like it?

Looks good to me also as you dont need any high powered lights for a FOWLR tank.
