High light and killies (was Re: CO2 use)

This comment got me thinking...I am new to killies (still in the research
phase) and was planning to put my first batch in a 5.5 gallon fully planted
tank. This tank has 5.5 watts/gallon of fluorescent lighting. Could anyone
recomend killies that don't mind high light? Is there any way to provide
conditions that the rest of the killies like with plants (ie use floating
plants to reduce light penetration)? Or should I just put the killies in a
low light tank and keep the planted one for something else?
Thanks for any insight,
