Lighting for 20 gallon NPT

I am thinking about converting my 20gal into a NPT, maybe a sorority. I am confused about what kind of lighting to get for the plants. I have links below to show the options I have been looking at. Also, are they worth buying off ebay or new? Also any other lights that would be a good option?

Aren't they the same one is just pricier than the other? Should be good for a low to moderate light setup. What are you planning on putting in there plant wise.

Oops forgot to ask was it a 20 long or regular 20 gal. That also puts a factor on the lighting height

I will be getting mine off of ebay but the 36 in version, the wattage and the color of the light are the important things

Are you getting different lights for it or does it come with some?
