Is my lights enough for these plants?
 
Hi guys, I just bought a used 48 inches light hoods with 2 bulbs of Philips. One is 40w, 6500k, T12. The other one is 34w. My tanks is 50 gallons. I plan to plants some of these plans to make my tanks more green and carpet: Dwarf Baby Tears, dwarf hair grass, microsword, Red Tiger Lotus, Bolbtis heteroclita.

my tank heigh is 20 inches

The baby tears (HC) isn't likely to do very well, since it needs good CO2 more than anything else. The others should do ok.
