Yes, it is fine. You do not necessarily have to plant with full on fast growers. But i would start off with 2wpg, then as your plants root bump it up to as much light as you intend to have. It is the best way of going about things IMO. Nothing will grow fast at 2wpg. Including algae. Once the plants are capable of annihilating Ammonium levels, crank the lighting up tp where you want.
