Fluval chi lighting?

The Fluval chi tAnk has its own led lighting system. Anyone know the wattage and is it any good for growing live plants?

It has 13 single watt LEDs. I had this set up, and could not grow anything at all other than java moss and marimo moss balls.

Thanks. That sucks. I think it would look beautiful as a planted shrimp tank

Just Moss can make a great Shrimp Tank !!!
Hardscape and nice Moss= Shrimp heaven !

I would use other Moss, like Xmas Moss.

If you wanted a planted tank you could always add more lighting, there are plenty of suppliers with various lamp like lights for sale. My advice is go and chat with a decent store. I recently added another fluorescent strip to my tank, bit of DIY and it's a million times better!
