as long as you have sufficient plants and surface agitation via power head or filter outflow you don't need one. i recommend getting 6700k lights the color of the bulb matters as well as the spectrum you want a lamp that peaks in the 420-475nm and 600-680nm ranges you could essentially grow plants under red and blue light but i recommend getting whites. pinks make everything in your tank glow pinkish. i think that should put you into the medium-low light range i could be wrong.
