Currently have 2 x 54w T5 and 21w of LED over the tank can soon up the light level if needed.

CO2 injected, Ei Ferts and plant substrate

This the substrate

If you are up fore a bit of challenge......... you could do a carpet of Elatine hydropiper!! It is in Troica advanced category, which means it will need good light and flow and added CO2. And it does not really like very high temperature.
It will look much like the carpet of Cubahemianthus (a bit more fresh green, actually) , but grow considerably slower, making trimmings much less often.
Like I said - a bit of a challenge, but it is really fantastic, when it works ............
