Upgrade lighting on Fluval Spec


I'm looking to buy a Fluval spec 19l just to see what I can do with it really.

In my bigger tanks i've stuck to low light plants etc however in this i'm not really looking to add fish due to its size so I'd just like to see what I can grow/carpet and how nice I can make it look.

The standard lighting with this tank is 37 led 7500K, however pretty sure these LED's wouldn't be sufficient to grow a carpet and whatever else I plan to try in this tank.

So wondering if anyone can suggest a lighting system suitable for this tank please? Dimensions are 43.5 x 27 x 16cm / 17.2" x 10.6" x 6.3" (L x W x H)
