Do I have enough lighting?
So I have Two 30watt florasun bulbs for a 125gallon it works out to about 2.5watts per gallon. They are in regular Flo lamps about a foot above the water. I only have a few bunchs of anacharis and some banana plants. I plan on making it a fully planted tank.

If this is what you have then you are on your way to being able to grow many plants and have a lot of good growth. If you do have 2.5 w/g with good quality lighting, I would also recommend looking into getting pressurized CO2 sooner or later. It may become a neccesity to control algae down the road.
