There's nothing like a properly-lit tank, but...I second Carlos' concern: watch out for algae!!!
The few plants you have will take off like mad, but with lighting like that, so will the algae, unless you put in LOTS more plants, enough to out-compete ( and therefore, out-grow) the algae. DO NOT WHATEVER YOU DO add more ferts or any co2 UNTIL you add more plants. And, the faster-growing, the better. Anacharis, hornwort, val, most stem plants (hygro is really pretty) work best.
