Default 54W T5*2 for a 300L (80 us G, 65 uk G) low tech aquarium

hello

i bought the rio 300 of juwel last week, and i noticed it comes with two 54W T5.

WPG makes it only about 1.35, while i saw online that for low tech planted aquariums i need at least 1.5~2 WPG.

some places online say that the WPG rule does not apply to T5, and that 108W would be enough for a 80G tank, and some places say the opposite.

im confused
