Fluval Edge lighting mod (led) for planted tank?

So my wonderful gf who is a fan of my aquatic addiction just bought me the Fluval Edge 6 gallon nano tank.

I have been researching light mods for this tank for days. It comes with a halogen light system that provides over 3 watts of lighting per gallon. The halogen bulbs are RM11. I'm going to do what this guy here did

replace the RM11 with RM16 socket and get this RM16 15 LED bulb

I'm going with 2 RM16 15 led's 240 lumen per bulb @ 6500 Kelvin. Will I be able to keep any plants alive with this? Java moss, Hornwort, ect.
