Is this light enough for a 30 gallon?

I'm still torn, but want to start building this tank.
Should I get a light that attaches to the glass (1 or 2 sides) or should I go for something that can be hung/suspended?
I'm looking to hopefully have some riparium style plants growing out of the water, so the lighting should be high enough off the waterline to allow for growth.
Any other lighting suggestions?
