You would have to limit the light to only one of the 96 watt bulbs if you hope to do low maintenance. Two bulbs would be 2.5 watts per gallon, and with that much light you will grow algae unless you use adequate fertilizing and CO2. Also, you will most likely want to change the bulbs to 5500 - 10,000K bulbs in place of the likely half and half bulbs you have now. Then Java ferns, anubias, crypts, vals should do fine, and maybe even some sword plants.
