For planted tank lighting, T8 fixtures were made obsolete by T5's. For a low light tank, check out various T5NO options.

Two of those T8 fixtures would work, but not very well. If I remember right, a lot of the little light they emit is lost due to subpar reflectors.

Obviously you will pay a bit more for better fixtures with better reflectors, but you will be happier long term.
