I think you'll find over time that your current lighting is not quite adequate enough to do the job you're looking for, with the plants you're contemplating, although the discus would probably love the low light atmosphere.

I have roughly the same-sized, low tech planted discus tank, with a 36" light fixture of 2 X 39 watt T5 HO bulbs (approx. 3" above the tank top rim) which I feel does a really nice job.

Have a look if you care to: OR
