130 watt pc Aqualight on 20 long enough for RBTA?

I have this light, and a 20 long just sitting in the garage not being used.

I ditched the light for LEDs because I read that PC doesn't penetrate water that great.

My question is: on a 20 long where the light would sit directly on canopy at 12" above the bottom of the tank, is this enough lighting to use for propagating RBTAs?
