Question Marina cubus

So i was at my local petsmart today and saw what i thought was a clean lookin little beta tank it was the .9 gallon marina cubus and i thought that would make a great shrimp tank it comes with a led clip light but i was wondering if it would be powerfull enough to grow any low light plants anyone out there have any experance with this tank or know it the stock light will support any plant life Thanks

If you do a search in the Planted Nano Tanks forum under cubus. You will see a bunch of setups with this tank. The light that it comes with is pretty dim but will definitely grow moss, probably anubias as well. My main problem with the light is viewing. It's just to dim to enjoy the tank. I have one with 2 RCS and they seem fine. No filter, etc. I just make sure I change the water 1 or 2 times per week.
