The main plants I would recommend are Ferns, Anubias and Crypts because they thruve under low light and are easy to keep. Most easy to keep stems like Hygrophila and Rotala will also do alright under that light.

There are a lot more plants that would probably be okay under that light too, so do some research on the internet and see if the plants you want to keep will or not.

If you get your CO2 and dosing right, then you should be able to keep almost any plant you want in that light.
I'd say it's more middle of the road relatively - the vast majority will grow fine, while some of the more challenging plants will just grow a bit slower.
