I have a fluval roma 240 which I want to set up as a planted tank with co2. It comes with a 14.5w led.

Does anyone know what additional lighting I could add that would be compatible under the lid?

How much light would I need?

I use to have a fluval roma 125 and used a fluval fresh and planted 2.0 which use to sit under the hood. Maybe a fluval 3.0 would fit, i would do a forum search.

My source of light has 9.2 lumen/inch2 performance. It hangs 5 inches above the water level, the height of the water column is about 15 inches.
Will that be okay for a planted tank?

What is the usual or average quantity (lumen/inch2), considering the other factors (water column etc.)?
