tiggity It is low light, not too sure if it will support grasses. Low light plants like mosses, anubias, java fern or crypts will work

ced281 15 watts in a 6.6 gallon tank (assuming it's <12" tall) should be plenty to sustain most mosses and grasses. Just be diligent about monitoring your algae levels since medium to high light without CO2 can easily lead to algae outbreaks.
