Nebie Lighting Question

Hi everyone, I want to start a new rimless tank on my desk at work. Under my cabinets are T8 25w lights. Will I even need a lighting system if the tank is right under these. I have included a pic. Any and all advice is greatly appreciated.

Are there two T8 bulbs there? It's hard to see. Even if there's just one, I bet you could get away with lower light plants. Mosses, ferns etc. Could be a nice low maintenance tank.
