2x Finnex Stingray on a 40B low tech?

Would two stingrays still be good for a non-CO2 (no excel either) tank set up like a "Tom Barr low light no CO2" method, with infrequent (weekly?) fertilizing? Is this too much light?

Can I do a fishless and plant less cycle with the aquasoil where I only do one water change when the ammonia and nitrite has been converted? Or will the ammonia be too high for even this to work?

Yeah, I sell this just by trimming it like any other stem plant for replanting. I replant my own top trimmings frequently. Doesn't get easier than this.
