Here's a bad photo of my setup. It's a 58 gallon with two par38 bulbs from Lowes. Had to raise the lights because I was getting alot of algae even with CO2.

Have you looked at led par38 bulbs yet? You can buy whatever wall fixture you like and just screw the bulbs in. Most of them are pretty focused so not too much spill.
