I don't know if this is alot of light!!?

Hi all,

I recently bought a 5 gallon crescent aquarium. It came with a 16 bulb Led lighting system. I plan on moving my anubius barteri from my other tank to this one. This may seem like a stupid question but I can't seem to figure out if this 16 bulb LED light fixture is a lot of light or if it is low light?
Here is a link to see the aquarium on Petsmart: Marineland® 5-gallon Crescent Aquarium System - Aquariums - Fish - PetSmart

This most likely is not alot of intense light, but having the anubius being a low light plant anyways it might do ok. But then you also have to wonder if the LED are even close to the correct spectrum for the plant. Might as well give it a try, and if the plant dosen't grow anymore or starts dying then move it back to the other tank.

I think I'll give it a try. I was looking through the manual for the light and it said 16W. You think that means 16 watts? Garr this is confusing:)
