I've heard that the stock light on this tank is considered "pretty good." From what I have found, you can do medium light plants, for sure. Maybe even some flexible high light plants. If you go to this thread: Show off your Evolve! you can get some ideas of the plants that grow in the tank. Most people on the thread are using stock lighting. I'm attempting some dwarf hairgrass. One person posted that with the evolve 8 lighting, it stays alive but won't propagate in her tank, so I'm trying it out.

My conclusion is that most plants that don't need extra CO2 should do okay with the stock lights.
