Assuming that those are screw-in spiral CFL bulbs, in a standard incandescent 10 gallon tank hood, you probably have from 30-40 micromols of PAR, which is good low-medium light. If you use CO2 you will be able to grow most plants very well, but slowly, and you will do better if either the substrate is a nutrient filled one, or you dose fertilizers.
