Question Lighting for my new 30G Freshwater setup


I am new to aquascaping and this is my very first tank. 30Gallon fresh water. I have Solarmax HE from Deep blue. It has one T5 10,000K daylight and one T5 Actinic-O3 lamp. Total wattage is 21Wx2.

I just ordered mini fissidens, flame, Belem, Echinodorus tenellus.

Is this light low, medium, good for my setup? Do I leave both lights on? I am not sure what is the bluish actinic light for.
