Newbie looking for some advice.

Hi everyone i'm new to the site and was hoping to get some advice for a tank build ill be trying out in the next few weeks.

Tank:
20 gallon long
Marina S20 Power Filter by Marina
CaribSea Eco-Complete
Nutrafin CO2 Natural Plant System with CO2 Activator
Rhinox 1000 - Glass Reactor
24 inch 42 watts LED sunstrip aquarium light

Inverts:
Red cherry shrimp
Dwarf orange crayfish

Plants:
Hemianthus callitrichoides
Ludwigia repens

My main concern is if my light will be enough to grow my plants. I'm also planning on making my own batch of CO2 mix after the packets Nutrafin send run out.

Does your LED light have legs that expand out? Cuz a 20L is 30" long.

Yes it does I went to a lfs earlier today to make sure it would fit on nicely. I was hoping to find a 15 gallon tank but, those seem less prominent in stores.
