What lighting for mr aqua cube


I'm going to be getting a 18x18x18 mr aqua cube very soon and tearing down my 55. My question is what type of lighting should I go with for this aquarium? I'll be injecting co2 and dosing dry ferts. Amazonia substrate. I want lush growth and red plants. Compact growth. I was thinking a planted plus but I'm not sure if it will give the bright enough light for this type of growth and to keep plants red with co2. What do you guys suggest

Finnex planted+ is what I will be running on my 98G 90"x14"x18". I think 18 inches is a good depth for it.

Would this be considered high light?
