What makes you say it's not enough light for a planted tank? There are those on here that have very lush and successful tanks with well under 2 watts per gallon, and some under 1 watt per gallon. You certainly have more options with a higher light setup, but then you also get into requiring CO2 and a fetilizing regime. I'd replace the background with a black one. Will bring out the plants and fish. I'm not loving the little pagoda and cave myself, but that's just me personally...to me it looks a little cluttered with the cave, then the pagoda and then the wood all in a row. I'd also add some taller background plants...maybe move the pennywort to poke out from behind the wood because right now to me it looks out of place where it is.
