With that amount of light you don't have to only go for the medium low light

I have a 66 gal tank with only 60 watt of light an i have even grown non low
light plants. so in a small tank like yours you should have no problems,
except with high light plants.

Feel free to test use my plant search engine to help you select.

But you could grow, echinodorus, anubias, hydrocotyle, cryptocoryne, java
fern, hygrophilla, and many more without any problems.

With many Thanks
