Keeping a planted tank is a balancing act . Light , ferts , etc have to be in a balance for things to be "right" . You can try the light you have and see how the plants react . I think most of the plants you have will do ok with low light . Just remember it takes time and patience to get a planted tank going . It really depends on what you want . If you want low tech then do low tech and get it going . Low tech does not mean no ferts , you just have to get it balanced . I am sure other more knowledgeable folks on here will chime in with more advice .

My wife says if I get one more aquarium she is going to leave me . I sure am going to miss her fried chicken .
