If you don't have $500-$1000 lying around, why not just setup a really nice low tech tank and scheme and dream of high tech down the road. My 60g low tech grows plants just fine. Oh, there's no real carpet plants but the fish don't mind. I'm using a 48" Finnex Planted Plus 24/7 in 24/7 mode.
I did DIY CO2 (Sugar/yeast) for a year or more and plants did grow faster, but I tired of the hassle for a little faster growth. Ask yourself if you want a fish tank or a water garden. (I'm more about the fish and the plants are naturalization and for water purity - and to that end, fast growing floating plants are the very best!) Oh, and fast growing floating plants will do well under almost any light.

What came first, the chicken or the egg. It was the egg, but not the egg from a chicken.
