2.2wpg - low or medium light?

I have 260w CF over a 120g tank (2.2wpg) - is that considered to be low light or medium light?

tank is 24" deep.

I'd say moderate lighting, but you will have some issues with short foreground plants. dwarf sage. should do fine, but dwarf hairgrass or pygmy chainsword might have problems. and glosso will have lots of vertical growth, not horizontal.

cool deal- thanks for the input malkore.

I'm new at this so I'm not planning on anything spectacular anyways. Heck, I'll be happy if my plants grow and fish don't from too much co2.
