I would pass, on this

The thing is that your tank is 10"longer than the light and it is also very wide. So you are going to have to raise that 18watt light high enough to light the tank throuhout the mass of the water column. and doing this will probably give you very very low light. You didnt specify if you were going to dose with any type of co2 (liquid fert, diy ltr. bottle, paintball c02, etc)

So if you are going to go for a NPT with allot of medium light plants its a pass.

this is all IMO
