Fluval Spec-v build

Good morning all!

I am building a Spec-V, right now it is running the stock light, stock sponge prefilter, then in the return chamber i am running a ZooMed Turtle Clean 15 gal mini canister filter. (https://zoomed.com/turtle-clean-15-e...nister-filter/)

I just ordered some Heteranthera Zosterifolia, Alder Cones, and more Cholla wood for it. Currently it is stocked with fake plants, cholla wood, and a few CRS that i picked up from a local. When my plants arrive today i will post an updated photo.


I do have 1 question, Is the stock Fluval light strong enough to grow low light plants? if not i was thinking of getting this light. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...43ZXEJ51BYBBNM

Thanks!
