the moonlights don't matter, unless you like watching your tank with the lights off, barely seeing anything.
this one should allow you to keep anything you want-
Current USA Nova Extreme Pro T5 Aquarium Lighting Fixture, 6X39 Watt, 36 inch

36 watts of T5 and your not convinced, so you are thinking of using halides? the next step up in halides is the 70 watter. i bet the fixture you have puts out more PAR than a 70 watt halide.
