LED Lighting

Hi Everyone,

I've been looking to add a couple plants to my 36 gallon tank; but, I've been having trouble determining how much lighting I need. I currently have an 18W LED system that generate about 1250 Lumens. Would this be enough for a couple of plants?

Thanks!

Low light plants would work under that light. Anubias, java fern, java moss, bolbitis, and crypts.
