To elaborate on the lilaeopsis, here is a photo of it in my tank:
http://jerbaker.dhs.org/fish/images/lilaeopsis.jpg. It doesn't grow
terribly slow. I planted three of those black plastic pots worth, and it
has pretty much covered the front 6" of my tank in about a month. It's a
little thin in places, but spreading fast.

My lighting is 4X55W Bright Kits from AH Supply on an 80G tank, so
that's about 2.75W/G, and you have 2.41W/G. Should be similar growth
