lighting for a 65g

797 1
Im thinking about trying to do a planted tank again. I am looking at using a 65g thats 24.5" tall. I am probably just looking at some swords and driftwood to go with some severums. I have this light fixture now
will this be enough light for a simple lowtech tank like that? Last time I tried something like this I had real bad leaf melt and got discouraged.

That should work very well, if you don't want to use CO2. You will still need to make sure the plants have the nutrients they need, so either use a substrate like ADA Aquasoil, use substrate fertilizer tabs, or dose the water occasionally with NPK and trace elements.
