500 lumen (6W LED) for low-tech set-up?

Hi all!

First post on this forum. From The Netherlands

I have a question about my recently set-up Dennerle 30L (7 gallon) nano cube. Which I plan to run as a low tech/maintenance tank.

This set-up came with a 6W LED (500 lumen), and I wonder if this light will be enough for the long run? Especially when plants start to grow more and cover off others from the relatively low light they. Also I'm planning the add some nice red root floaters.

Currently the tank if planted with slow growers such as crypto wendtii, crypto crispatula, bucephalandra kedagang, small leave java fern, and some floaters.

Wondering if might need to go for a light upgrade
