The lighting is more then enough for dwarf hair grass, almost too much so the only issues would be algae if your ferts and co2 aren't balanced, I haven't ventured into co2 yet but I have a mini fluval co2 system I plan on converting soon to be able to use larger tanks

Best fertilizer from the general consensus of this forum is seachem's flourish comprehensive fertilizer which is what the majority of us use including me use. This is a sample of my month old tank that i just took for you, I've only dosed twice so far
