There is no for sure way unless the whole setup is shown. That being said, i'm guessing its a low tech. Every plant in there that I see is pretty easy to grow.

Yes, its optional. You can set any light intensity you want and save it there. Set the timer and run it just like you would with any light.

DHG can grow in low tech. If you are using excel you can get more plants to grow than the usual low tech. Heres my mini m from a while back with no CO2 or ferts.

Your carpet looks like slow growing crypts. I'd add some plants that grow a little quicker like hair grass, glosso or something. Trim the stems in the back and replant the tops. The tank will fill in...
