If you haven't bought the tank yet, I might suggest getting something that has a width that has a whole number of feet. A 29g tank is 30" wide. The problem with this is that standard fluorescent lights are a few inches short of whole feet, i.e., 22" and 34" for 65w and 96w bulbs, so the lighting fixtures tend to be easily configured when they are whole feet long. When they are 30" wide, like the fixture you are looking at that has a 22" bulb, that leaves some space on the ends that doesn't give off light.
I have a similar setup, a 29g with a 65w JBJ Formosa, and this doesn't cause a problem for me. It just irks me slightly.
