90cm/184L low tech question.

First off, a big hello to everyone on here.

I have recently purchased a 184L rimless glass tank/48 gallons. 90cm x 45cm x 45cm (35 inches x 17 inches x 17 inches ).

Filtration: Eheim 2217
Light: 1 Kotobuki Flat LED 900. 28 watts, 1830 lumen, 10,000K.

Will this light be sufficient enough to grow plants at low tech? Or is it underpowered? I will not be using Co2 in this tank.

I have also purchased 10 KG of Real Black sand and 3L of fine white sand which is not even close to being enough. I am on the fence of using the black sand as well. Thinking about using white sand instead.
I also purchased 5 KG of Kazeyama stones. Sizes vary from 10-15 cm. I need a couple more big showcase stones (25 cm) to mix it up as well as some nice driftwood.

I haven't yet figured out which plants I want to use. I will have to do some more research into that.

As for fish, we were looking at a school of tetras, corys, shrimp a few others we haven't decided on yet.

I will get that sorted once I know that my lighting is good enough to maintain a healthy plant and fish habitat.

Thank you.
