LED lighting included with Fluval 29 Gallon tall kit enough?


I'm thinking about setting up one of these as a Walstad tank at the office: http://ca-en.hagen.com/Aquatic/Aquar...ll-Glass/15207

They're available for cheap with a stand in my local market. But I'm wondering if the LED lighting is enough for a Walstad tank, or will I have to get stronger lighting? If it needs stronger lighting, can anybody provide advice on what to get for a tank this size that's available in the Canadian market? I'd prefer something that looks a little nice because it will be in the office (ie: no bare fixture shop lights from home depot).

I don't know what plants your trying to keep, but that light should work for very low light ones like crypts, annubis, and java. I kept an annubis and crypt tank for a couple of years with one t8 bulb 18 inches above the substrate and the plants did just fine.
