Need Help with Choosing a Lighting Fixture

I'm looking at lighting fixtures for a 29 gal tank. I'd like to keep the wpg at 2x and I would also like lunar light integrated... Any reccomendations?

Good choice. You'll be hard pressed to find many cheaper as 30 inch fixtures aren't the "norm" and many cheaper comapnies don't make them.

How about this one? http://hellolights.com/301xcofraqcf.html

This gives 2.25 wpg, right?

Here is one I was looking at, but you will need to buy another bulb as it comes with 50% actinic. I think the black looks better then the one in teh link above, and i like th integrated white LED.

65w is what is going to cause the problem, 55w is already pushing well into Co2 territory, if you don't mind adding Co2 then either fixture will suit you well.
