I would have to say "yes" although Eheim filters would be the better choice as a lot have claimed that Fluval can easily become defective.
Lighting really depends on your choice. Arcadia and Interpet can work but again, it's up to you to choose. Choose fluorescent lights, not the incandescent ones as incandescents tend to produce heat which will also warm up the water. You can choose between pink and white. A combination of pink and white encourages plant growth. For a heavily planted tank, aim 5 watts per gallons. Sparsely-planted tank may have 2 watts per gallon.
Plants that can thrive in dimly-litted tanks:
Javan moss(Vesicularia dubyana), Javan fern(Micresorium pteropus), anubias, vallisneria, hygrophila polysperma and cryptocoryne.
Those are suitable to beginners.
You may try the elodea densa and ceratophyllum demersum.
