Canopy Lighting

Hi Everyone,

1st time poster here.

I'm new to the salt water aquarium world and after admiring reef systems for years, I've decided to embark on my own adventure.

I'm starting with a 40 gallon FOWLR system that I intended to covert to a reef system after some practice down the road.

I will have a canopy on top of my tank. My question is what is the best type of florescent lighting I should buy that will fit inside the canopy.

Here is the canopy I am getting:
Sedona Aquarium Canopy - Red Oak - 36 in x 13 in

I'm not quite sure what would be the best option for a FOWLR that will be upgraded to a reef system later.

Somthing like this?

Nova Extreme HO Light Fixture - 2 x 39W - T5 - Saltwater - 36 in.

Is that mountable inside a canopy?
