36w archaea over 12 long?

Would that work if I put the light in the center of the tank and raise it high ? I want I start this tank. But I'm still working on lighting etc; and filtration

Any light on any tank will "work". How suitably it will work though depends on what you'd like it to do. What exactly are you trying to have the light do?

I'm not sure. I jus wanted to know if the light would reach each side of the tank

If you go high enough it will but then it may not be bright enough to grow what you want. I guess all you could do is try. Fill up the tank and see what it looks like, you should be able to get a reasonable idea of what the coverage is.
