That's an Odyssea fixture. The reflector and bulbs are kind of crapy (the latter can be replaced), but it can chuck light pretty well. It depends on the size of the tank. You could potentially have way too much light for a smaller tank, or medium light for a larger tank. Either way, prepare to have plans for carbon (CO2 or Excel).
