The Marineland fixture will not be appropriate, as the light itself will only cover about 48" of your tank - right in the center. It won't provide much for the six inches of tank space on either side.

Have you considered other LED lighting options like those from Finnex? They're a forum sponsor and are worth checking out.

What kind of plants will you house? Will you be dosing ferts? Using CO2?
