Help with my first nano setup

I'm looking to start a new nano tank for my office, I really want something in the range of about 8-15gal and that has an all included look, I.e hidden filter setup. I've seen a lot online like fluval flex but am concerned that the lighting included wouldn't be enough for high light plants. I want to grow a carpet of either DHG or Dwarf Baby Tears and generally make the aquarium very lush. I don't mind buying additional lighting but I wouldn't know where to start. Any advice on a setup?

I have a 15 column and use a 50w led 6500k flood light from ebay and have >50 par at the tank bottom. I also use diy co2 with great success.
