Is this light going to work?

Hi all, new to the forums.

I picked up a used 20 gallon long on craigslist and am starting the silent cycle today. I think I have everything in order, and wanted to double check the lighting. This is the bulb that's in the hood right now. It's an older aq and hood, so retrofitting means a new hood.

GE F15T8/PL/AQ #49892 | GENERAL ELECTRIC | Fluorescent

I'm planning on planting it heavily today, just wanted to see if you think this will work decent. It's my first setup, I'm not going for perfection as I'll probably have some other screw ups along the way. Will this lighting be sufficient for the plants to grow?
