CFL Okay for Shrimp Tank


I have this light 12 inches (or less) above my java fern/mosses/marimo ball/guppy grass/floaters. Will this be enough to keep them growing?

My Tank Specifications:

13.75'' H x 11.8'' W x 11.8'' D, 22.4 lbs
Overall Height - Top to Bottom: 13.75 Inches
Overall Width - Side to Side: 11.8 Inches
Overall Depth - Front to Back: 11.8 Inches
Overall Product Weight: 22.4 Pounds

About 1 inch of fluval shrimp stratum on the bottom, so no heavy planting. At most, I may add a piece of driftwood with something on it, otherwise, the plants I have above are all I'm keeping.

Have same bulbs, now I have tanks full of mosses/naja grass, they'll do fine.
