What plants will work with t5?

812 6
Hi I have a t5 with 2 39watt bulbs. I was wondering what plants I could put in my 46 gallon bowfront.

I currently am think about planting:
Italian Val
Micro sword
Rose sword
Amazon sword
Red tiger lily
Water sprites

Any help would be appreciated because I am not sure how to use the lighting guide with a t5.

Thank you for the response.
I was wondering what kind of lighting setup I have because I'm know with a t5 you can't use the normal watts per gallon to find out your type of lighting. Do I have a medium or low light setup?
