 What  plants  do  you  wish  to  have.  Do  you  want  it  to  be  low  tech  ot  high  tech.
 IMHO  a  tank  of  this  size  should  be  low  tech  unless  you  are  experienced  in  controlling,  nutrients  &  lights,
 This  would  be  a  15  tank  ,  so  you  have  approx  1w/g.
 If  you  are  going  in  for  low  light  plants  like  anubias,  mosses,  this  light  is  okay.

 Hi  mini,
 A  2x1x1  tank  is  about  13  gallon,  if  you  really  want  demanding  plants,  go  for  2   15watt  cfl/pl  lights,  you  must  take  care  that  light  is  well  distributed  in  there.  A  30watt  lighting  will  be  sufficient  as  the  tank  is  low(about  1'),  the  3wpg  rule  generally  applies  to  20+gallon  high  tanks(about  18"+  high).   
 Regards
 Hamza

 Hi  Sharath
 
      Well  HC  and  Hair  grass  are  light  hungary  plants.  I  would  recomend  you  go  with  either  T5HO  24W  or  a  36W  PLL.
 
 Regards
