Which light hanging about a 12 gallon long?

I need to decide what light to get above a 12 gallon long.

I'm going to try and emulate a pond edge, with lots of plants growing out of the top of the water and spilling over the side- so the light will be hung a bit above the tank, maybe a foot or more...

There will be no CO2, and I don't want an algae farm. However, I've not done emersed plants before, so I don't know how much different the light should be...

Which finnex light would be best?

Regular 36" fugeray?

fugeray planted???
