Lighting for my 55 Gallon

Hello,
I am looking to add an anemone for my clown FOWLR tank. I need one that allows good O2 transfer. I currently have a "typical lid". Any kind of suggestions on what kind of canopy (I don't have any "jumpers") and what kind of lights? I believe the dimensions of the tank is 47 long (I think this is close), 12inches wide and about 19 inches deep.

Thanks

PS:
I was looking at this one...is it overkill?

The 216 or 432W?

Might try eggcrate cover instead of any "lids" for better gas exchange.

Oops sorry,
The 216W. I can get the egg crate too, (where can I get that)?

Lowes or Home Depot. Its actually a 4x8' grid for suspended ceiling. Look where the ceiling tiles are.

I don't think that would be overkill, but I'm not sure if the 19" depth and anenome needs can be met. I'm not the one that knows a whole lot about anenome light needs.
