Exclamation [Help!] Lighting a planted 29 gallon

Okay- my head officially hurts. I can't seem to figure out the best way to light this sucker so I'm asking you guys. What should I get before I waste a ton of money on the wrong thing. D:

It's going to be a moderately high planted tank.

Just a standard 29 tank. The rest really depends on the lighting but most of the plants I can get my hands on are moderate tohigh light. I'm just having trouble deciding what fixture will properly light this tank because what it came with won't cut it
