Hi GenaV I have a 60" as well. Most 48" light fixtures say the work for 60" but that is not my experience. You can spend anything you want on a light fixture but be careful as many of them have too much light and that would lead to algae. I use this one https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07H79GVBL/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1
KZKR Aquarium LED Fish Tank Light 60 inch Remote Control Hood Lamp for Freshwater Saltwater Marine Full Spectrum Blue and White Decorations Light I have a 30" deep tank and this works fine to get to the bottom. I balance the CO2 flow and number of hours of light to control algae. If you want fancier lights that can do weather Fluvial and Current USA makes good ones specifically for plants. I have duel Current USA 48 set and I can adjust not just weather but color and intensity by color to anything I want. For the simple plants I grow these lights do a good job.

Fluval also makes higher end high intensity models if you are experienced enough to try to grow plants that require bright light and high CO2. Most will be 48 inch and constant intensity and color. KZKR is unusual in that they make 60" lights.
