I have a 75g aquarium with JBJ lighting(260w), will this be enough to grow- Eustralis stellata, Ludwigia inclinata, and Tonina fluviatilis?

I think 3.5wpg will be plenty. What type of CO2 injection will you be using?

Stellata will grow fine with that lighting. I have 220 watts PC bulbs on my 75 gal. I'm using all 9325K GE bulbs, IMO, the best bulb for viewing and growing plants.

Do you Ludwiga spec. "Cuba"? I would be happy to give you some Inclinata stems once they grow more...
